Copies of The Past Is Never, the latest selection for Wheat Ridge Reads, are being left in various little free libraries throughout Wheat Ridge. Readers are encouraged to find a copy at one of these venues or check one out from Jefferson County Public Library, read it and return it, then join the conversation with the author at a public event in January 2019.

Author Tiffany Quay Tyson will be at Swiss Flowers and Gift Cottage on Wednesday, Jan.16 from 7-9 p.m., and at Ye Olde Firehouse on Thursday, Jan. 17, from 9-11 a.m. to read a selection from the novel and discuss it with readers. She will also sign personal copies of the book.

An author event will also be held at Wheat Ridge High School for students and faculty the afternoon of Jan. 17.

Suitable for adult and teens, the novel addresses the issues of loss and abandonment and family secrets. The book is told primarily through the eyes of teenaged Bert, who leaves Mississippi with her older brother Willetto search the Florida Everglades for their missing baby sister Pansy. The book is a tale of family secrets and self-discovery.

A Denver resident, author Tyson is a faculty member at Lighthouse Writers Workshop and the Lighthouse Young Writers Program.

Wheat Ridge Reads is sponsored by the Wheat Ridge Cultural Commission, Jefferson County Public Library, and the Wheat Ridge Library.
