Author to visit Huntington library on Nov. 29

Indianapolis author Mike Mullin will visit the Huntington City-Township Public Library on Thursday, Nov. 29, at 6:30 p.m.

Mullin's critically acclaimed first novel, "Ashfall," was published in September 2011 by Tanglewood Press. The sequel, "Ashen Winter," was published last month.

During his visit to the local library, Mullin will speak on taekwondo, how to be a better writer and the geology of the Yellowstone supervolcano. He will also sign copies of his books, which can be purchased at the event. No purchase is required to attend.

Mullin holds an undergraduate degree in political science, with minors in Latin American studies and economics, and a Master of Business Administration from Indiana University. He has a black belt in Songahm taekwondo. He has worked at a children's book store, in marketing and as owner of a remodeling company.

"Ashfall" follows a young man as he searches for his family following the eruption of a massive Yellowstone volcano, which plunges his hometown, and much of the nation, into an apocalyptic nightmare of darkness, ash and violence.

"Ashen Winter" picks up the story, and the search, six months after the volcano's eruption.
For information, call the library at 356-2900.

The program will be held in the adult meeting room of the main library in Huntington, located at 255 W. Park Drive in Huntington.
