Every year in March for the last twelve years Community READ has been bringing amazing authors like Jamie Ford, author of Hotel On the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Lisa Genova, author of Still Alice and Left Neglected, and Kathryn Stockett, author of The Help.
Community READ was originally started to celebrate the Community Foundation’s ten-year anniversary and to bring to attention that illiteracy is a problem not only in Findlay, Ohio, but also in Hancock County.
This year, Community READ is bringing author Mitchell Zuckoff to speak. He is a professor of Journalism at Boston University. He has written six books, and three of them are New York Times best sellers. Zuckoff was a Pulitzer Prize finalist and also won the Distinguished Writing Award from the American Society of Newspaper Editors.
This Friday March 27 at 9 a.m. Mitchell Zuckoff will be visiting R.L. Heminger Auditorium where he will speak about his book, Lost in Shangri-La. That night he will be also visiting the Winebrenner Theological Seminary at 7 p.m.
Tickets for Community READ are five dollars and sold at the Hancock County Public Library.
