Holyoke Public Library 250 Chestnut Street Holyoke, MA

 

Join us as Janet Barrett presents her recently released book “They called her Reckless: A True Story of War, Love, and One Extraordinary Horse” at the Holyoke Public Library on Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30 pm.

 

Holyoke Public Library

 

Janet Barrett has loved and been fascinated by horses all her life, and for 25 years almost obsessively rode, owned, and cared for them. For a time, her company, Horses For Courses, booked horses for print and TV ads.

From the moment she heard about Reckless, Janet Barrett knew she would write They Called Her Reckless — A True Story of War, Love And One Extraordinary Horse.  Her experiences as a horsewoman gave her a particular appreciation of the tight bond that developed between Reckless and her fellow Marines, from which the story springs.

The event is free and open to the public; copy of the book is available at the Library to borrow and read before the event on Wednesday, February 22nd.

For further questions on this entertaining event, please contact library@holyoke.org or 413-420-8101.

Conversation with Local Author series are relaxed conversations between our members and an outstanding member of our author community.

Parking available along the street in front of the new entrance to the library and in generous lots adjacent to and immediately across the street from the library.

After our discussion, Janet Barrett will sign books. Books will be available for purchase or bring your own.
