Author Kevin Troxall will speak at the Bob Kirby Branch on Thursday, July 19 at 6:00 p.m. He will discuss his book One Town's Son: A Journey Home to Find the Truth. In the rolling hills of a small Kentucky town, a mystery emerged in the summer of 2004. What started out as a festive reunion for former classmates would turn tragic in the morning light. When Scotty Martin’s unconscious body was discovered the following day, the inquiry surrounding his demise would set off a maelstrom of implications, suspicions, and small town gossip. Was it an accident? Or was it something more sinister? No one could say...or would say. Five years later, author Kevin Troxall would travel back to his hometown to investigate the case that had tormented a family and rattled a community.
