Friends of the Michael Schwartz Library Present Author Mary Doria Russell on April 18th

Mary Doria Russell and Doc book cover


Friends of the Michael Schwartz Library
Annual Local Authors Book Talk Series
Featuring Mary Doria Russell
April 18, 2013, 12:00 pm
MC 304

Free and open to the public

Meet Mary Doria Russell, winner of numerous national and international literary awards, on April 18, 2013 at Noon in the MAIN CLASSROOM ROOM 304. Her visit will include a discussion of her new fiction, Doc , which examines the Old West of Doc Holliday and Dodge City, followed by a question-and-answer session, and a book signing. Doc will be available for purchase directly before and after the event, courtesy of the CSU Bookstore. The event is free, but please call 216.875.9734 or email to register. Refreshments will be served.

Born to the life of a Southern gentleman, Dr. John Henry Holliday arrives on the Texas frontier hoping that the dry air and sunshine of the West will restore him to health. Soon, with few job prospects, Doc Holliday is gambling professionally with his partner, Maria Katarina Harony, a high-strung, classically educated Hungarian whore. In search of high-stakes poker, the couple hits the saloons of Dodge City. And that is where the unlikely friendship of Doc Holliday and a fearless lawman named Wyatt Earp begins -- before the gunfight at the O.K. Corral links their names forever in American frontier mythology -- when neither man wanted fame or deserved notoriety.

A national best seller! "A magnificent read ... filled with action and humor yet philosophically rich and deeply moving ... more realistic yet more riveting than any movie or TV western ... Doc Holliday is the tragic hero in this terrific bio-epic." - - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) [review from]
