Meet Signor Randy Michael, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for a reading from his novel, Osawatomie, that acclaimed author T.C. Boyle calls, “A confident, powerful novel about race and family that moves through its shifting time periods with beauty and grace.”
“Osawatomie” comprises three interwoven stories centered in the small Kansas town beginning in 1854 with a young woman’s choices, choices that reverberate more than a century. This is the story of two people coming of age a century apart and yet are joined by a secret that itself contains a secret. The story begins in the early days of Bloody Kansas, when the Kansas Territory hosted the first true battles of what would become the Civil War six years later. Their stories reach across time from the small town’s settlement to its centennial celebration and to the early Sixties and the election of President Kennedy.
Books will be available for purchase and Randy will sign them.
