Saturday, July 26th
Kay Taylor Burnett will join us on Saturday, July 26, from 11:00-1:00 to sign copies of her West Texas mystery, No Odes to Widows.
The unsolved murder of a young Highway Patrolman in Alpine, Texas, catches the attention of three local women, one of whom is a criminal justice professor at the college, and all of whom are widows. Katherine, Doris and Susanna enjoy good friendship and mutual support as the unfolding murder investigation touches upon their own wilderness of loss and grief and their unique paths to personal resolution.
A woman flees across two states to get away from a crazed ex-husband. Mae Maguire settles in a friend’s fishing cabin in Colorado on the Rio Grande where she pursues her art and attempts a new beginning. A world of intrigue opens up as she befriends her neighbor who knows secrets about a World War II German prisoner camp once located nearby.
Kay Burnett is a Fellow at the Standford University Graduate School of Business, a long time Santa Fe Institute Trustee, and a founder of Marfa Public Radio. She is originally from Alpine, Texas, where No Odes to Widows is set.
