Sylvia Wilkinson Presents Her New Novel, “Big Cactus”

The Friends of the CU Libraries will host Sylvia Wilkinson reading from and discussing her new engaging novel, Big Cactus, on Tuesday January 27, 2015 at 4:30 p.m.in Norlin Library, 5th Floor on the CU Boulder Campus. Big Cactus is a rollicking, yet poignant, account of plucky teenage Benny and his mission to take his headstrong 84-year-old Aunt Lucy on a road trip from North Carolina to see the giant saguaro cactus in Arizona. Along the way, they rescue a stranded runaway, and the three venture forth in Benny’s 1965 GMC pickup, accompanied by Benny’s dog Polar. Big Cactus is published in Boulder by Owl Canyon Press.

Wilkinson has written a number of books ranging from novels for adults, non-fiction works and juvenile titles with automotive themes. She is a recipient of many grants, including National Endowment for the Arts and Guggenheim fellowships, has held teaching positions at the University of North Carolina, William & Mary, Hollins, Sweet Briar, Washington University and the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, and is a teaching scholar with The National Faculty.

This event is free and open to the public. A light catered reception will precede the program. Pay parking is available in the Euclid AutoPark.
