Brando Skyhorse, author of “Take This Man,” will visit Collin College campuses on Monday, April 9 and Tuesday, April 10. Free and open to the public, Skyhorse’s visit is the culmination of the college’s 2017-2018 Book-in-Common program which offers students throughout the college the opportunity to read a selected book, discuss themes and meet the author.

“Take This Man” is a memoir about a young man who grows up believing he is American Indian, when he is actually Mexican, and his search for a father as he tries to find truth in his mother’s fantastical stories. Skyhorse’s visit includes presentations, Q&A sessions and book signings.
