Author Mary Stobie will visit with Wheat Ridge Library’s Thursday Morning Book Group on Thursday, August 20, 9 a.m. She’ll be discussing her book, You Fall Off, You Get Back On. The event is open to all.
Stobie is a Rocky Mountain writer and terms her book a “patchwork memoir.” This fun-filled book is part Erma Bombeck and part Annie Oakley as Stobie recounts her experiences as a young rodeo champion and Hollywood ingénue.
As a starlet she had surprising encounters with Hollywood A-listers like Warren Beatty, George C. Scott, and Clint Eastwood before she returned to family life on the Colorado range and settled into the writing.
Join us for this entertaining discussion and you’ll discover that Mary Stobie is anything but “settled.” Even in suburbia, life continues to be an adventure (or misadventure) for Stobie who finds every escapade a great excuse for a joke or life lesson.
You Fall Off, You Get Back On is a reading treat for anyone who appreciates the Rocky Mountains, enjoys an honest and loving life story well-told, and loves a good laugh.
