THIS IS ONLY A TEST – B.J. Hollars

June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

As author B.J. Hollars and his six-year-old son conclude their cross-country road trip to retrace the Oregon Trail, they’ll drop by Mother Foucault’s on Saturday, June 16 to share excerpts from their recent adventure. In addition, in a special Father’s Day reading, Hollars will also share from his debut collection of essays This Is Only A Test, which explores the intersection between fatherhood and fear, sacrifice and safety, and the humbling effect of losing control of our lives.

B.J. Hollars is the author of several books, most recently The Road South: Personal Stories of the Freedom Riders, Flock Together: A Love Affair With Extinct Birds, and a collection of essays, This Is Only A Test. Hollars serves as a mentor for Creative Nonfiction, and the founder and executive director of the Chippewa Valley Writers Guild. An associate professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, he lives a simple existence with his wife, their children, and their dog.
