For its sixth annual Keller Reads! One Book, One City! program, the Keller Public Library is excited to present two special events next week with bestselling nonfiction author S.C. Gwynne.

An award-winning journalist and former Texas Monthly executive editor who lives in Austin, S.C. Gwynne is the author of New York Times bestseller "Empire of the Summer Moon."

A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award, the book traces the rise and fall of America's most powerful Indian tribe —the Comanches — and the life of pioneer woman Cynthia Ann Parker and her mixed-blood son Quanah, who would become the tribe's last and greatest chief.

Gwynne will host a free discussion and book signing for “Empire of the Summer Moon" from 4-5 p.m. Wednesday, June 7 at the Keller Public Library. And at 6 p.m. that evening, fans are invited to An Evening with S.C. Gwynne at Sky Creek Ranch Golf Club. Prepaid tickets to the dinner, remarks and book signing are $35 each, and are available now from the Friends of the Keller Library (www.kellerfriends.org).

This is the Keller Public Library’s sixth annual One Book, One City event; in its premiere year, the program featured author Steve Berry and his bestseller “The Jefferson Key.” In 2013, the focus was on Marcia Clark's "Killer Ambition"; in 2014, Deborah Crombie’s “The Sound of Broken Glass”; in 2015, Richard Russo's "Empire Falls"; and in 2016, Jacquelyn Mitchard's "Two if by Sea."
