|Join us for an evening event with Sam Halpern, with his novel, A Far Piece
to Canaan, inspired by his own childhood in rural Kentucky.
“Debut author Halpern, a retired professor of nuclear medicine, is best known as the humorous crank who inspired son Justin’s infamous twitter feed Sh*t My Dad Says, a book of the same name and a short-lived CBS sitcom. Halpern’s first novel is an affectionate, sometimes frightening and eerily effective drama about coming of age in Bluegrass Country. … Shades of Homer Hickham and Pat Conroy appear in this surprising debut from a dad who inspired a Twitter frenzy.”—Kirkus Reviews
