About Blake W. Murri:

Author Blake W. Murri grew up in the sixties, “the greatest time ever to be a kid in Small Town, USA.” But it was also an era of social unrest and turmoil, during which his mother demonstrated compassion for marginalized neighborhood families by providing rides to school for their children. It would take witnessing his mom’s love for her neighbors to inspire the author to act, speak up, and break an unjust social norm. It would take a broken window to help him recognize that honesty is the best policy. And it would take breaking a few rules for him to appreciate the wisdom behind them.

The Duttons Can Play is the story of Murri’s childhood years, the adventures he lived, and the lessons he learned along the way—including the value of welcoming some shunned neighborhood kids into his life.
