Nevada Historical Society' Writers' Wednesday
Wednesday, March 14, 2018
5:00 - 5:30 pm - Book Signing, Wine and Cheese reception
5:30 - 6:30 pm - Lecture
Please join us for an evening with author Anthony Shafton who will discuss his latest book The Nevada They Knew: Robert Caples and Walter Van Tilburg Clark.
Program Admission is $5 for Adults and Free for Members and Children 17 years and under.
Mr. Shafton's book, The Nevada They Knew, is the story of a legendary friendship. Robert Caples (1908-1979) was Nevada's leading artist of the twentieth century, Walter Van Tilburg Clark (1909-1971) its leading novelist.
Caples' works range from portraits of divorcées and risque cartoon maps of Reno during the heyday of its divorce mill, to charcoals of Nevada Indians, to profoundly spiritual landscapes - especially of Great Basin mountains. Clark's fame rests on The Ox-Bow Incident, but his finest novel is The City of Trembling Leaves, a celebration of youth based in part on the early years of his friendship with Caples in Nevada.
The goal of the program is to highlight writers who specifically focus on Nevada, the Great Basin, or the West in general. The authors talk about the content of their books but also share details about the creative process.
