Old Capitol Books welcomes local author J.T. Westfield on Sunday, October 22, 4pm-5pm, to discuss and sign copies of his books Eye Contact: The Book of Helga and CutThroat.

It’s 1973 and they're all in their early twenties. Finding himself unavoidably attracted to the wife, Krieg is basically helpless when they have their first kiss in the opening pages, and the plot and ensuing love triangle develops from there...
