Blind Your Ponies by Stanley Gordon West

Monday, March 2 | 6:30 pm

Italian Kitchen, 201 Lewis Ave S, Watertown

Sam Pickett never expected to settle in this dried-up shell of a town on the western edge of the world. He’s come here to hide from the violence and madness that have shattered his life, but what he finds is what he least expects. It seems that every inhabitant of this forgotten outpost has a story, a reason for taking a detour to this place—or a reason for staying. Author Stanley Gordon West has filled the town of Willow Creek with characters so vividly cast that they become as real as relatives, and their stories—so full of humor and passion, loss and determination—illuminate a path into the human heart.
