Canada Richard Ford
Saturday, June 2 at 7 PM

Join us for a very special evening with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Independence Day, who will read from his eagerly anticipated new novel – a haunting and compelling story of 15-year-old Dell Parsons, whose sense of normal life is forever altered when his parents end up in jail and his twin sister abandons him.

Dell is transported across the border by a family friend to an obscure town in Canada, where he struggles with the remoteness of his new home. But then he is taken in by a charismatic American named Arthur Remlinger, whose calm exterior masks a violent nature.

A magnificent work of Montana gothic that confirms his position as one of the finest stylists and most humane storytellers in America. – Washington Post

The Upset: Jack Fleck's Incredible Victory over Ben Hogan at the U.S. Open Al Barkow
The Upset: Jack Fleck's Incredible Victory over Ben Hogan at the U.S. Open
Thursday, June 7 at 7 PM

Meet Al Barkow, who shares a thrilling play-by-play recounting of one of the most famous golf games of all time in his book The Upset. Through firsthand sources, he brings back to life the look and feel of the entire three days of regular play and the fourth-day playoff of the 1955 U.S. Open at the Olympic Golf Club in San Francisco.

Jack Fleck had the slimmest of resumes as a professional tournament golfer, and had never even come close to winning on the PGA Tour. Yet he got himself into a playoff with Ben Hogan - one of the greatest players in golf history - for the game's most prestigious title. When Fleck defeated Hogan, it was not just surprising, it was one of the most unexpected outcomes in all sports history.
