Hollye Dexter’s Barnes and Noble Event

hollye1Over this past weekend I went to the most amazing book launch at Barnes and Noble – The Grove – of Hollye Dexter’s phenomenal book, FIRE SEASON.

It is a must-read, searing account of the roller coaster ride that began for Hollye and Troy Dexter on the night they jumped out of a second story window when their house was engulfed in flames. Her story – from ruin to redemption – ends with hope.

On Saturday, Hollye read a riveting and heartfelt passage, held up a charred childhood diary dug out of the rubble, presented an expert from the Red Cross who told us how to keep safe in emergencies and was joined by husband Troy Dexter on guitar and singers Gloria Loring and Stephen Bishop. What a family. What a community. What a book launch. Magic!!!

Ganesh, remover of obstacles stands guard on Hollye Dexter’s deep and searing “Burn Season.” Picked the book up and couldn’t put it down. What a writer. What a journey from ruin to redemption. Congratulations, Hollye! See you at the launch – Barnes and Noble – The Grove – April 25.
