Book Signing with "On My Ass" author Lou Dean

BOOK SIGNING with Author Lou Dean  SATURDAY July 26th 1:00 pm at the museum! 

The author and her riding buddy Jeanne saddled their faithful steeds — Jesse James, a donkey, and Tut, an Arabian. They began a month long ride that took them across northern Colorado, to promote non-violence in schools.  As they encounter unforeseen challenges along the trail, Lou Dean wrestles with the brokenness of her past and seeks the courage to stay in the saddle.
