Indy author to visit high school, Marshall library

Author Mike Mullin of Indianapolis is scheduled to visit Marshall (Ill.) High School and Marshall Junior High School on Sept. 26, ending the day with a public program at Marshall Public Library at 6:30 p.m.

“Ashfall” is the first book in Mullin’s trilogy; the second book is “Ashan Winter.” The third book, “Sunrise,” is due to be released in spring 2014.
