The last time Haruf took us here, it was in Eventide, the sequel to Plainsong. The McPheron brothers are gone now — their ranch house empty — and in Benediction, Haruf introduces us to other residents of Holt: Young Alice, who is living with her grandmother next to Mary and Dad Lewis, who’s been diagnosed with terminal cancer and whose last days give rhythm to this otherwise timeless place.
Travel to Holt tonight at 7:30 p.m., when Haruf will read from his book at the Tattered Cover LoDo, 1628 16th Street. For more information, call 303-436-1070 or go to www.tatteredcover.com.
