Meet the Author: William "Boxcar" Curry

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 North Main Street Gainesville, FL, 32601 United States (map)

Stop in on Sunday, October 21st to meet local author William "Boxcar" Curry, who will be signing copies of his first book _Before the Blazes: A Story of Unconventional Journeys_. It is a tale of the modern day hobo and his daily struggles for survival riding on the steel rails in the growing world around him leading him on a path of uncertain journeys.

From William Curry's website:
I consider myself a thru hiking minimalist vegetarian ultralight gear nerd as well as an inspiring ultra marathon runner and recovering addict who is a lover of all life. And if I'm not walking or running on a trail somewhere I'm writing about it.
I write what I feel and consider my style to be a mix between memoir and fiction basing the majority of my stories loosely around accounts in my own life. I am a Florida native but have traveled many places in the USA in both conventional and unconventional ways.

This life is a journey to be traveled and explored with many things to be learned in a short amount of time. Grasp it and don't waste one minute not going forward.

Free and open to the public.
