Kyle Mooty will be the featured speaker at the Fayetteville Library Sunday, 12 August 2018 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Walker Community Room.
Mooty will read from his new book, New Set of Downs: How Johnny Dyess Fought off His Greatest Would-Be Tackler and Returned to Winning Ways.
Mooty’s book traces the career of small-town football star Johnny Dyess, who played four seasons under “Bear” Bryant at Alabama, but became involved in the drug culture for many years before reclaiming his life.
Mooty is a graduate of Fayetteville High School and has worked at various media outlets in Northwest Arkansas.
Books will be available for sale and signing after his presentation.
The talk is one in the Fayetteville Local Authors series.
