A reading and signing with author Sarah Stark.


Author Sarah Stark will read excerpts from and sign copies of her new novel, Out There (Leaf Storm Press). Out There is the story of a young Army veteran (Jefferson Long Soldier) who returns home safely to New Mexico from two tours of duty in Iraq convinced that the book he carried with him (One Hundred Years of Solitude by Garbriel Garcia Marquez) saved his life. But when he can't find a way to escape the dark memories of war, he borrows a motorcycle and rides south across the border to Mexico in search of the famous author behind the magic of the life-saving classic novel.
