Wednesday, June 5th, at 6:00pm – Author Talk with Joe Wilkins for Fall Back Down When I Die at the Country Bookshelf
We are delighted to welcome author Joe Wilkins back home to Montana to share his debut novel Fall Back Down When I Die. Joe Wilkins brings Montana and the American West to life with the same authenticity of Daniel Woodrell’s Ozarks and Ron Rash’s Appalachia. Set in eastern Montana ranch country, Fall Back Down When I Die is a beautiful tale of love and sacrifice and bonds that can’t be broken. The novel tells the story of Wendell Newman, a young ranch hand living in a state of chronic despair and Rowdy, the abandoned boy put in his care. Joe Wilkins, who grew up in the rural ranch country of Montana, in the very county in which this novel takes place, is a lyrical storyteller who writes with deep familiarity about the equal parts beauty and brutality in the American West and about the social barriers that act as walls of division.
