  • Shelby County Public Library - Carnegie East Wing 33 West Broadway Street Shelbyville, IN, 46176 United States (map)


Benjamin W. Bass will be in the Indiana room talking about his new book Alone in the Light.

About Benjamin:

Benjamin W. Bass is a native Hoosier and a ten-year veteran of the Indiana National Guard. It was his time in the Guard that gave him the basis for the new novel, Alone in the Light. Drawing from his personal experience, Bass has crafted a very real depiction of post-deployment life.

Bass graduated from Indiana University, where he met the love of his life. Now married, they reside in Indiana with their two children, a lovable dog, and two very questionable cats.

When Benjamin is not writing, you can find him playing with his children on the living room floor, hunting on his family’s farm, or relaxing on the patio with his wife and a glass of scotch.

Free presentation/ No reservations are necessary to attend

The Genealogy and Local History Department is located in the library's annex, the Carnegie East Wing. This is next to the main library.
