Lobo: The Hunted And The Hunter, a graphic novel, with author Robert Young

February 5 @ 7:00 pm

Free

“Lobo: The Hunted And The Hunter” is based on a true story of an epic encounter that changes a wolf, a man, and America forever.

The year: 1893. Wolves have been nearly exterminated in North America. In the northern New Mexico territory, a small pack survives, preying on local ranchers’ cattle. This pack is led by a smart and cunning wolf that would become known as Lobo.

Desperate to stop the cunning and intelligent wolf, the ranchers offer a bounty to anyone who can stop Lobo and his pack. Enter Ernest Thompson Seton: artist, writer, naturalist, and expert wolf hunter. But as Seton hunts Lobo, he sees a wild west rapidly disappearing, one that may be lost forever.

“Lobo: The Hunted And The Hunter” is the retelling of Seton’s classic story “LOBO” and the legacy of his fateful encounter with the wolf, a legacy that continues to this day.

Robert Young is the author of 28 books, most of them middle-grade nonfiction. Topics for his books have ranged from chewing gum to Ellis Island, from baseball to the dropping of the first atomic bomb. Wolves have been a lifelong interest, and he came across the story of Lobo and Ernest Thompson Seton while researching these fascinating animals. This book, Robert’s first graphic novel, is intended for older readers and adults. His talk will focus on the seven year journey of creating this book. Held 7 to 8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 5.

Supporters agreed to amend the bill to add a trigger clause clarifying that Oregon would only ditch daylight saving time if and when Washington and California do the same.
