Among the dusty bookshelves of the public library and through the streets and historic buildings of Wichita, one can find Michael D. Graves digging through old microfilm and researching the 1930s.

Born, but not raised in Wichita; it is a place to which he frequently returns. The city is the inspiration for and setting of his first solo-written, published book, “To Leave a Shadow.” The book was selected by the State Library of Kansas as a 2016 Kansas Notable Book.
