JOHNNY BOGGS

BARNES & NOBLE--Author Johnny Boggs is mostly known for his keenly crafted Western novels celebrating the hardships of the American pioneer or the gun-slinging cowboy. But in his most recent work, Ghost Legion, Boggs abandons the mud-filled streets and smoke-filled salons of the Western landscape in favor of the bloody battlegrounds of the East Coast during the Revolutionary War era. A change in scenery seems to have done Boggs some good. His new tale of a woman and a black man's opposing loyalties in the midst of the war for independence creates an intriguing portrayal of the violence and struggle for freedom through the eyes of the average participant. Hear him read from his Revolutionary adventure at 7 p.m. for free.
