Join us on July 9 for the first of the 2024 FOLTL Summer Writers' Series authors, Donald Lystra and his newest book 'Searching for Van Gogh'. All author talks begin at 7pm and will be held at the Willowbrook Mill located at 201 Mill St Northport MI. This FOLTL event is free and open to the public. Our July 9 evening will be in honor of Nancy Giles, longtime Friend of the Library and Summer Writers' Series chair. It's fall of 1963 in a city in America's industrial heartland. Audrey Brubaker, rejected by her family and community but determined to build a life for herself, becomes the unlikely mentor to Nate Walker, a math and science prodigy who has turned to art in an effort to cope with the death of a revered older brother. In a relationship that borders on love but never quite seems to get there, Audrey gives meaning to Nate's artistic aspirations, introduces him to life's hard edges, and helps him find courage. Together they set off on an ill-fated mission: to recover Nate's brother's body from a military cemetery in northern Michigan. Along the way, secrets are uncovered and boundaries are crossed which will change Nate's life forever. But in a heart-wrenching ending, it is Audrey who will need to tap the well-spring of Nate's empathy for her own redemptive needs.
