Author Patrick Dobson Discusses His Travelogue, Seldom Seen

 The Kansas City Public Library welcomes author Patrick Dobson for a presentation based on his travelogue Seldom Seen on Tuesday, November 3, at 6:30 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.


In May 1995, Dobson left a steady if deadening job to take a trip, letting chance encounters guide him to a deeper sense of himself and his eventual destination of Helena, Montana. This book charts experiences with seldom-seen people of the small towns, far-flung outposts, and the Great Plains that make up “our America.” Against the majestic sweep of the open plains and endless horizon, his story is one of hope and desperation, richness, and simplicity – a portrait of who we are in the heartland.


Patrick Dobson is a freelance writer, former journalist, and working member of Ironworkers Local Union No. 10 in Kansas City, Missouri.


Admission is free. Call 816.701.3407 to RSVP. Free parking is also available.
