Readstown author John H. Sime will visit the Soldiers Grove Public Library on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. to discuss his new book, ‘No Place To Go.’ It’s thriller based on a real historical figure of the mid-twentieth century. 

Cy Butt was a professional student, who actually attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison for decades on a family inheritance. At the same time, he was a legendary whiskey drinker, practical joker, and lawyer. At one time, he did work for the Wisconsin Attorney General.

This book twists the dial one notch forward and makes Cy a sleuth and secret state investigator of cult murderers and thieves operating in Wisconsin in 1953. Several scenes are set in the Kickapoo Valley. With a touch of science fiction, there will be exposure to different realities, readers should be warned.
