Library Author Series: Laura Pritchett

Spend an evening at the library with one of the West’s defining literary voices. Laura Pritchett speaks about her new novel, Stars Go Blue. Stars Go Blue is a breakout novel of family, nature, sacrifice and justice. Laura Pritchett brings her straightforward style and Rocky Mountain rancher sensibility to bear on a situation that is distressingly increasingly prevalent: the horror, misery, and desolation of advancing Alzheimer’s disease. Stars Go Blue is a triumphant novel of the American family, of ranchers at every turn affected by the brute, thoughtless forces of nature—internally and externally—even as they strive to exert some level of control over their existence. With an unflinching look into the world of Alzheimer’s, both from the point of view of the afflicted and the caregiver, the novel offers a story of remarkable bravery and enduring devotion, proving that the end of life does not mean the end of love.
