Monday, May 7, 6:00 pm
Former SJ/E teacher Bruce Holbert is returning to the St. John Library on Monday May 7 at 6 p.m. to share his new book Whiskey with the communities. This program is co-hosted by the Endicott and St. John libraries. Copies of his works will be available for purchase.
Whiskey is the story of two brothers, their parents, and three wrecked marriages, a searching book about family life at its most distressed--about kinship, failure, enough liquor to get through it all, and ultimately a dark and hard-earned grace. With the gruff humor of Cormac McCarthy and a dash of the madcap irony of Charles Portis, and a strong, authentic literary voice all his own, Bruce Holbert traverses the harsh landscape of America's northwestern border and finds a family unlike any you've met before.
