We have many copies of Half Broke Horses available for you to check out at Schlow and exciting programming planned for this year, including a live mustang demo at the Snider Ag Arena, a theatrical performance at the Boogersburg School House, and a "family" writing contest sponsored by the Center for American Literary Studies at Penn State. Look for more information on Schlow's and the Centre County Reads website. We hope you'll join the community conversation by reading Half Broke Horses this year!
