Join us for a virtual presentation by author Ed Davis, as he discusses his historical novel The Last Professional, the story of a young man riding the rails and fleeing a troubled past at the end of the 20th century. We are nearing the end of our 2021-2022 Virtual Presentations series, so you won’t want to miss our last book talk of the season on the inspiration behind this thrilling tale of adventure!

“From the moment I caught my first freight train as a kid, and felt it literally carry me away,

I knew my life would never be the same.”

Ed Davis began his writing career over forty years ago, pausing in boxcars, under streetlamps, and in hobo jungles to capture the beats and rhythms of the road as he caught freight trains and vagabonded around the Pacific Northwest and Canada. As Ed illustrates in Forty Years from Boxcar to Book Launch The Last Professional was born on the rails. His short stories have appeared in numerous literary journals. His novella, In All Things, and his collection of travel pieces, Road Stories, have both been Amazon Top Ten bestsellers. Ed’s death row thriller, A Matter of Time, was written in real time, twenty-four hours, as the last day of the hero’s life unfolds. His work has appeared in Gris-Gris, New English Review, and The Penman Review among others.  Ed and his wife Jan live in Northern California, not far from Jack London’s Beauty Ranch.

This presentation will be held via Zoom. Capacity is limited to 100 participants.
