Tucson Festival of Books: Authors in Conversation with Ginger Gaffney

Phone: Free.

Visit Website

Time: Starting: 03:00 PM (Arizona time)


An alternative prison ranch in New Mexico conducts a daring experiment: setting the troubled residents out to retrain an aggressive herd of horses. The horses and prisoners both arrive at the ranch broken in one way or many— the horses often abandoned and suspicious, the residents, some battling drug and alcohol addiction, emotionally, physically, and financially shattered. Ginger Gaffney’s job is to retrain the untrainable. With time, the horses and residents form a profound bond, and teach each other patience, control, and trust. - "Half Broke, A Memoir," by Ginger Gaffney.

Ginger Gaffney will talk about her book during an interview on the new virtual series: "Authors In Conversation," brought to you by Tucson Festival of Books, on Wednesday, May 27 at 3 p.m. Arizona time.
