One Book Yuma Welcomes Author Garth Stein to AWC/NAU-Yuma on February 28

Yuma, AZ (February 21, 2013)— Meet New York Times best-selling author and film producer Garth Stein on Thursday, February 28th, 2013, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in the 3C Building Schoening Conference Center South Wing on the main campus of AWC/NAU-Yuma, 2020 South Avenue 8E in Yuma.

Stein is the author of “The Art of Racing in the Rain,” a 2008 novel told from the point of view of a dog, Enzo, a philosopher with a nearly human soul. Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.

Stein will present at two additional community events during his tour in Yuma. On Thursday, February 28, 2013, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., he will be at the Yuma Main Library, 2951 South 21st Drive in Yuma. A community talk will be followed by questions and answers and book signing. Then on Friday, March 1, 2013, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., he will be at the Heritage Library, 350 Third Avenue in Yuma, where guests can meet the author and take a picture with “Enzo.” This session will include the Guide Dog Puppy Raisers of Yuma and the Humane Society of Yuma as special guests.

All three events are free of charge and open to the public.

Other books by Garth Stein include “Racing in the Rain: My Life as a Dog,” “Raven Stole the Moon,” and “How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets.”

One Book Yuma is a literacy and humanities program aimed at engaging our community in dialog about pertinent, topical and timely issues important to our region and the world beyond.
