CELEBRATING LOCAL AUTHORS WEEK
In this third year of presenting authors with a Stark County connection, we asked the writers if they would share a passage of their writing on the theme of “people.” The passages vary widely, as do the genres the authors work in. There is a son’s history of his father’s WWII years, a mystery set in the Garden District of New Orleans, a poem about a childhood accident, a grandson’s discovery of his grandfather’s Great Depression secret, and, as in past years, a piece of exceptional journalism by a writer from The Repository. You can come here daily this week to read an offering by a different author each day.
One of the authors is featured in a live event this week. Please come to hear Frank Lavin discuss his book, Home Front to Battlefront: An Ohio Teenager in World War II, on March 21st at 6:30 in the wonderful Palace Theater. Copies of the book will be available for sale at the venue. Register Here View Author Events
