Renowned Blue Highways author William Least Heat-Moon celebrates the release of his debut novel CELESTIAL MECHANICS: A Tale for a Mid-Winter Night (Three Rooms Press, April 2017) with a presentation and discussion of the book at St. Louis Public Library, Schlafly Branch, on Thursday, April 20 at 7pm.
Co-sponsored by Saint Louis independent bookstore Left Bank Books, “An Evening with William Least Heat-Moon” will feature the award-winning author discussing concepts that drive his first work of fiction, which the American Library Association journal Booklist hailed as “An entrancing journey toward deeper insight into the cosmos, an exploration readers will share and savor with every masterfully crafted sentence.” CELESTIAL MECHANICS has received high praise in the months leading up to publication. Foreword Reviews praised it as “imaginative work about a man’s quest for true connection.” Library Journal notes it is “definitely for fans of philosophical novels and Least Heat-Moon’s nonfiction.”
