Event Preview: The Tale of Willy Willys with Ben Hilliker

Join us at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 14th, 2013, at Left Bank Books--Central West End when Ben Hilliker and his 1926 Willys Overland touring car will present the picture book account of another vintage Willys, The Tale of Willy Willys (illustrated by Robert Shay, who will not be present) as part of Local Social.

One day Mr. and Mrs. Willys are out for a drive when they encounter a car being hauled in for scrap.  A car whose name also happens to be Willys.  They can't ignore what seems meant to be, so they adopt the car himself and turn him over to a team of mechanics who soon have him running like new!

Copies of The Tale of Willy Willys will be available for purchase and signing, and you'll get to experience the fully-restored 1926 car up-close and personal!  If you can't make it to the event, call Left Bank Books at 314-367-6731, ext. 1, to order a signed, personalized copy.
