Local author reads from Western May 22

Karl L. Stewart idolized his grandfather when he was young. The man was an icon from another age. A Choctaw raised in Oklahoma, his grandfather had magic hands – he could make and fix anything. One of Stewart’s most-prized possessions is a pair of leather chaps his grandfather made for him before he died when Stewart was only 10.

In the Mood for a Thriller?

Thriller is just one of the words I would use to describe Crashers by Dana Haynes. Other words that come to mind; brilliant, spellbinding, breathtaking, and... surprising. The story revolves around an airplane crash and the investigation that follows. Whenever a plane crashes, a "Go Team" is assembled to investigate. Each team member is a leading expert in a specific field. This time, the team has only three days to find out what caused the plane to crash – what normally takes months to determine. Why the rush?
