Join Alabama native Bo Wilkerson, author of Two Twisted Tales and Texas Trace, for a meet and greet with readers and a book signing at the library. Much research goes into the writing of his historical books about America's early years, the Texas Rangers and the Republic they fought for. The reader can feel assured that though the story and characters are fictional, the details are accurate. Adventure, love, coming of age, and more are to be found in these historical bodies of work.

Mr. Wilkerson worked for many years in corporate America and is a graduate of Auburn University and Troy State University. Now as a retiree he fishes for a living as a guide on the Choctawhatchee Bay of Florida’s panhandle and writes for a hobby.
