Event Details

Join us for a Read & Sign with Dr. Neil Bockoven, author of the new novel Moctu and the Mammoth People, a powerful coming-of-age thriller set 45,000 years ago in Paleolithic Italy.  The book follows a Cro-Magnon youth who must fight for leadership and love in his tribe while doing battle with mammoths, wolves and saber-toothed cats as well as his captors, the “Pale Ones,” a fearsome group of seemingly cannibalistic Neanderthals. The novel is earning excellent reviews and comparisons to Jean Auel’s classic Clan of the Cave Bears.  “An intriguing, exciting and moving saga,” says one reviewer.  Another calls the book: “Revolutionary . . .  unique, fascinating and deeply sourced.” Bockoven, an award-winning PhD geologist and journalist, uses the most recent genetic and scientific discoveries about our earliest ancestors to lend authenticity to the book, but his storytelling skills rule supreme.  Wine and cheese will be provided at the event.
