Fire in the Sky author @ Yuma County Libraries

sw-travis-walton-July-2014Author Travis Walton will visit Yuma County Libraries on Saturday, July 19th, to discuss his book Fire in the Sky: the Walton Experience.

On November 5, 1975, logger Travis Walton and his co-workers noticed a strange glow in the sky. Curious, Walton stepped out of the truck and walked toward the light. Suddenly a beam appeared, and Walton was forced to the ground as his panicked co-workers fled the scene. With Walton missing for five days, his co-workers were suspected of homicide, and a search was conducted for the body. The Walton case received mainstream publicity and remains one of the best-known instances of UFO abduction.

Books will be available for purchase, and book signings will commence after each program. There is no charge to attend.
