"I think a good novel would be where a bunch of men on a ship are looking for a whale. They look and look, but you know what? They never find him. And you know why they never find him? It doesn't say. The book leaves it up to you, the reader, to decide. Then, at the very end, there's a page you can lick and it tastes like Kool-Aid."

How do the facts of history give rise to fiction? This question will be explored at a slide show and reading from "Mariano's Crossing," and award-winning historical novel by David M. Jessup. Historical photos of some of the book's characters, along with pictures of locations from the novel's setting, will be included. Jessup's novel was recently nominated as one of three finalists for the 2013 Colorado Book Award, in addition to winning first place in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Contest.
