Doug Worgul: Thin Blue Smoke
All Library locations will close at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18 for a staff development event.
Described as "a vital new voice in American fiction," Kansas City resident Doug Worgul presents his novel Thin Blue Smoke, a tale of redemption that focuses on love and loss, hope and despair, God and whiskey, barbeque and the blues.
Set in present-day Kansas City, the humorous and soulful novel features complex characters such as an ex-big league ballplayer/felon, an Episcopal priest running from his past, two lost souls looking for love, a past-her-prime blues singer, and an old-school Texas barbeque man.
The book will be available for sale.
