The Last Bookstore is pleased to present veteran television actor Kevin E. West and his new book, Kevin's Dictionary: 'Life...in a Word'. At a time when tolerance, understanding and togetherness is so badly needed throughout America, do join us for a light fun philosophical 90 minutes discussing how often words and scenes to life can be viewed and even experienced...differently by us all.

Life...in a Word is a short collection of 50 everyday words with an associated story, however, the story belies the word. Hence, Kevin's Dictionary. "A picture is worth a 1,000 words ... but a word can be a whole new picture!". Kevin naturally found himself observing life and having a word come to mind, but if he expressed his thoughts, other people gave him an odd look. Yes, he understood seeing a lovely picture and calling it "beautiful" or seeing two people laughing and labeling it "joy." But something was still missing for him. Kevin was seeking a larger appreciation of words and the spirit of their meaning in the context of life. One day, he was laughing at his sister while she tried to swat a fly in the house. BAM! He found his answer in a common housefly, the only quick flying creature that sees human activity from both inside and outside...virtually everywhere. Suddenly, Kevin began to live his life and view it as if he were the 'fly on the wall.'
