Thurber House Evenings with Authors: William Matson and the Crazy Horse Family

October 10, 2019 7:30 pm @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Presented by Thurber House, Evenings with Authors is a series of readings and chats with nationally known authors, followed by a Q&A session, book signing, and a punch and cookies reception.

The Fall 2019 Evenings with Authors Series is presented by The Ohio State University Libraries.

Join William Matson and Crazy Horse family elder Floyd Clown, Sr. for an inside look into the life of famed Lakota war leader, Crazy Horse. In partnership with Matson, the Edward Clown family, nearest living relatives to Crazy Horse, has recorded the family tales and memories told to them about their famous grandfather. In many ways, the oral history differs from what has become the widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. Until now, their story had not been told outside the family for over a century because the government had been hunting them since Crazy Horse was assassinated in 1877. This will be Matson and the Clown family’s landmark 265th appearance as they travel across the United States and Europe.

Interested in having dinner with the authors? Call 614-464-1032 x11 for tickets to the Author’s Table Dinner. You will share a great meal with the authors, talk about their work in a more intimate setting, and get reserved seating at the event.
