Art Garner

After retiring from a forty-year career in journalism and automotive public relations, Art Garner started writing books. His first, Black Noon, The Year They Stopped the Indy 500, about the tragic 1964 race was a finalist for the prestigious PEN/ESPN award for literary sports writing. Subsequent titles include Indy 500 Memories, An Oral History of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing and Hood to Coast Memories, about the running relay race staged each year from Mt. Hood to the coast of Oregon.
