    • Land of the Horses—A Special Evening with
      Authors Chris Lombard and Helen Peppe

      We are pleased to welcome author and equestrian photographer Helen Peppe back to the Library. Helen drew us all in last year when she used her stunning photography to illustrate the reading and discussion of her acclaimed debut memoir Pigs Can’t Swim.

      Helen will be joined by Chris Lombard, an accomplished horse trainer/clinician and author of the recently released book Land of the Horses: A Story of a Lost Soul and a Life Found. Chris will share the personal journey that led him to write the book—and the healing that can come when humans and horses connect. Helen will follow with a tutorial on horse photography techniques, using her stunning images once again as examples.

      This special event is free to attend and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
