Sandra Day O'Connor and H. Alan Day to Present at National Book Festival in Washington D.C.
by BWW News Desk - Aug 27, 2014

Sandra Day O'Connor will interview her brother H. Alan Day about his new memoir, 'The Horse Lover: A Cowboy's Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs,' at the Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington D.C. O'Connor and Day co-authored the New York Times bestselling memoir Lazy B: Growing Up On a Cattle Ranch in the American Southwest. The Horse Lover, co-authored with Lynn Wiese Sneyd and published by the University of Nebraska Press, is Day's personal account of creating and managing the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary located on 35,000 acres in the Sand Hills of South Dakota. After successfully lobbying Congress to approve the idea, Day received 1500 wild horses in 1989 from the Bureau of Land Management. His deep connection with the animals in his care is clear from the outset, as is his maverick philosophy of horse-whispering, which he used to train the entire herd. The memoir reveals the Heculean task of balancing the requirements of the government with the needs of the wild horses. Day's story also weaves in cowboying adventures that he had astride some of his best horses - Saber, Aunt Jemima, Tequila, Chico - and the lessons of perseverance, steadfastness, and hope he learned from these four-legged friends. Booklist has called 'The Horse Lover' 'an instant classic.' H. Alan Day is a retired cattle rancher and former owner of Mustang Meadows Ranch located near St. Francis, South Dakota; Rex Ranch near Whitman, Nebraska; and Lazy B Ranch in southwestern Arizona. Lynn Wiese Sneyd is a published author and owner of LWS Literary Services. Sandra Day O'Connor served on the U.S. Supreme Court from 1981 to 2006. The 14th annual Library of Congress National Book Festival will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from 10 am to 10 pm on Saturday, August 30, 2014. O'Connor, Day and Sneyd will be presenting at 11:50 am. (more...)
