Local author Luman Slade will be at the McCormick County Library on Thursday, November 14th to discuss his first book: Determined: The True Story of Big Blue Walkinghood. The free presentation starts at 7 pm and will include a book signing, a question and answer session and refreshments.

Determined is the story of Big Blue Walkinghood and her rival cousin Little Red Ridinghood as they journey together through a magical Storyland where they encounter fairytale adventures by the dozen – each retold in a highly devilish format. The book is intended for the middle-grade audience, but is enjoyed by adults too. Copies are available for checkout at the library or for purchase at Books on Main in downtown McCormick.
