Horse: A Novel
Ever wonder how the Kentucky horse racing world works? Join us in reading a gripping historical novel based on the true exploits of the thoroughbred “Lexington”, involving the jockeys, trainers, veterinarians, and researchers connected with horse racing. Accompany three sets of characters from the 1850s, 1950s, and 2019 who train, race, and paint winning horses. Join current day Smithsonian investigators as they examine forgotten paintings and an equine skeletal exhibit in storage. Brooks, Pulitzer Prize author, blends science, art, and love themes while exploring on-going racism on the track and in today’s cities.
ALL are welcome! Copies are available from libraries (print, digital, and audio) or your bookshop.
