“It was exhilarating to have so people interested in the health and safety of horses attend the Lucky Jack event,” said Blackburn. “I look forward to the event at Steinbeck Country Equine Clinic and helping the Monterey Horse Park.”

Blackburn will continue the west coast leg of his book tour with two upcoming events at the Lodge at Pebble Beach in Pebble Beach, CA on Nov. 10 and at a private farm in Woodside, CA to benefit the Community Horse Advocacy Program on Nov. 12.

Later this month Blackburn will appear at The National Press Club’s 36th Annual Book Fair and Author’s Night in partnership with Politics and Prose in Washington, D.C. The event planned for Nov 19 will combine a night of literary fun with support for the National Press Club Journalism Institute, which provides college scholarships, training for journalists and awards for excellence in journalism.
