Author to visit Basehor Library

March 4, 2004

Kansas author Max Yoho will visit Basehor Saturday, March 13. Yoho will be at the Basehor-Linwood High School Auditorium at 2 p.m. March 13. His visit is sponsored by the Basehor Community Library.

Yoho was born in 1934 in Colony, Kan., and grew up in small towns much like his imaginary "Epic" in his book, "The Revival." He moved with his family to Atchison at the age of 10 and was soon enthralled with his adventures along the Missouri River.

He graduated from Topeka High School and attended Washburn University, where he was a feature writer for The Washburn Review. Yoho retired in 1992 and started a new career as a writer. He has published a number of poems and short stories and wrote two humorous novels, "The Revival" and "Tales from Comanche County."

After his talk, Yoho's books will be available for purchase. He will be available to sign the books as well.

For more information call the library at 913-724-2828.
