When: August 23 7pm - 11pm
Author Sarah Stark will read excerpts from and sign copies of her new novel, Out There (Leaf Storm Press). Out There is the story of a young Army veteran (Jefferson Long Soldier) who returns home safely to New Mexico after two tours of duty in Iraq convinced that the book he carried with him (One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez) saved his life. But when he can't find a way to escape the dark memories of war, he borrows a motorcycle and rides south across the border to Mexico in search of the famous writer behind the magic of the life-saving classic novel.
The adventure that follows is a heart-warming journey of healing and self-discovery. Humorous, redemptive and awash in magic realism, Out There is a beautiful homage to Gabriel García Márquez and a celebration of books that have a made a difference in our lives.
