Fourth Friday Readings feature Barton, Leuthold

This month’s Fourth Friday Readings speakers will draw on law enforcement and military careers.

Set for 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 23 at The Lodge, 660 Evergreen Farm Way, the readings feature Rex Barton and Ken Leuthold, both of Sequim.

Barton’s military and law enforcement background give his suspense thrillers a big dose of reality, and his non-fiction experiences lead to personal triumphs through tough situations. He will read from his autobiography which will be published this year.

Leuthold is a Montana ranchers’ son who started his education in a one-room school and completed it with a law degree from University of Montana. Along the way, he worked in a 22-year career with the U.S. Air Force.

Leuthold’s second career has been as an estate planner in Sequim. He has published in Air Force trade magazines and is now writing for family and friends. His reading will be from a short story based on one of his early flights.

The readings are at The Lodge’s media room. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early.

Following the featured speakers, there will be an hour of 5-minute open mic readings. Interested writers may submit their names before the event begins.
