Author Event: J.A. Woods
On Saturday evening, February 8, we host member-author J.A. Woods, the nom de plume of Jackie Swiesz, as she presents her book, Kings and Cowboys. The event starts at 5:30 and wraps up by 7:00.
In Kings and Cowboys, innocence meets wildness as Will navigates high school life, friendships, and young romance in his small Wyoming town in the 1960s. As J. A. Woods' novel opens, Will feels like he has the winning hand, with a steady girlfriend, Friday night poker games, and his cherry Chevy. But a harrowing moment on a mountain road changes all of that, and Will must find a way to reshuffle the deck before the aftermath takes him out of the game. Kings and Cowboys is a poignant and entertaining coming-of-age story, but it also introduces a deeper, heart-wrenching departure from the usual inspirational theme that will take readers by surprise.
