The Montgomery-Floyd Regional Library presents an online virtual author event featuring author Ron Peterson, Jr and special guest Montana Thrasher with "Chasing the Squirrel" on Thursday, April 8, 2021.

Join us for a discussion with best-selling author Ron Peterson, Jr. and his new book "Chasing The Squirrel", the true story of notorious drug smuggler Wally Thrasher, whose investigation led to the biggest drug bust in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic history in 1986.

Wally Thrasher grew up in Pulaski County and lived in a mountain estate near Virginia's New River Valley in Bland County. He owned oceanfront homes and yachts in Florida, spent weekends in the Caribbean and laundered money in Las Vegas, where he partied with Frank Sinatra's entourage.

During the virtual event, special guest Montana Thrasher, Wally Thrasher's son, will join us too.

The film rights for the book were recently acquired and are in development for a documentary series.

Admission is free and all are welcome.
