Nixon-John’s novel is based on the true story of a Kentuckian who was one of the youngest Americans to be charged with a capital crime and sentenced to death.
March 27, WKU Journalism and Broadcasting Director Loup Langdon will be presenting “Passport for Discovery” as part of WKU Libraries’ Far Away Places series. Langton will be discussing his personal story of discovery through his many travels.
Langton enjoys getting lost on his trips and exploring things that are unknown, such as the time he found himself alone at midnight in the tower of Frankenstein’s castle on a cold March night.
“There are various lessens in life, like enduring friendships, kindness toward strangers, managing fear and a sense of transcendence that I’ve learned during various travels that I’ll discuss,” said Langton.
Both programs will be held at 7 p.m. at Barnes & Noble Booksellers on Campbell Lane in Bowling Green. These are free events for anyone in the community.For more information, go to wku.edu/library or contact Brian Coutts, Department Head for Library Public Services at (270) 791-3040.
