This event will be held at our Clement street location.
Please join Green Apple Books on Clement street Wednesday, July 12th at 7:00pm as we welcome Author David Hicks, reading from and discussing his new book White Plains.
Flynn Hawkins is a graduate assistant at a prestigious university, on his way to greatness and wisdom. But in the aftermath of 9/11, Flynn leaves his wife and children, resigns his teaching position and heads west, only to get lost in his guilt and in the mountains of Colorado. When he ends up stuck overnight in a snow drift during a blizzard on the Continental Divide, he realizes he needs to remake himself into the kind of man his children need him to be. With wit and insight, David Hicks turns a compassionate but unblinking eye on what it means to be human—to be lost while putting yourself back together again, to be cowardly while being brave, to fail and fail again on the way to something that might be success.
David Hicks is a writer, English professor, and co-director of the Mile-High MFA in Creative Writing at Regis University. His stories have been published in the Colorado Review, Glimmer Train, Saranac Review, and many other magazines. He lives in Colorado with his wife Cynthia and with his grown children, Stephen and Caitlin, nearby.
