“In My Father’s Tire Tracks” author talk at library


KENT—Author Jack Sheedy will discuss “In my Father’s Tire Tracks” Friday, June 7, at 6 p.m. at the Kent Memorial Library, 32 Main St. In the book, Sheedy traces the December 1959 journey his father took across the U.S. in a brand-new Thunderbird. As he drove away, he vowed to his wife and young children, “I’ll be home for Christmas.”

More than six decades later, his son, the author of this thoughtful road trip memoir, decided to retrace those tire tracks city by city. As you ride along with both men on their separate but congruent journeys, the author makes surprising connections with his father across the gulf of time. 

The event is co-sponsored by House of Books and the library. The program is free and open to the public.
