William Least Heat-Moon is a literary legend that Boone County is lucky to claim as its own. His first book, Blue Highways, was on The New York Times bestseller list for 42 weeks.

In 2017 Publishers Weekly called Heat-Moon’s debut novel, Celestial Mechanics: A Tale for a Mid-Winter Night, “an elegant story of one man’s search for meaning in the cosmos." At this special event Heat-Moon will provide a sneak peek at what readers can look forward to in his next book.
