The Eden Valley Area Library was pleased to host Watkins, Minn., native and local author Richard Maus to a group of students. His book Lucky One explains the timeless story of a child’s struggle to make it through pain, depression and despair. The students had first-hand experience at what the disease of polio was and still is, an issue in some countries.
“I want readers to understand how the loner whom everyone ignores or teases could become isolated, depressed, alienated and angry - and to motivate them to do something about such situations. ‘Making it’ should not be a matter of getting lucky.” (Richard Maus)
