On the Beat in Bluffton

John Baumgartner speaking about his new book at the library on June 13

Local author John Baumgartner will be discussing his teen mystery novel "Like Losing Your Left Hand," his writing process, and the importance of following your dreams at any age on Monday, June 13, from 6:30-7:30 pm at the Wells County Public Library’s main branch in Bluffton. His talk, "Daring to Dream — Never Giving Up On What You Really Want to Do" and book signing is free and open to anyone in the community but would be most suited for teens and adults.

At the event he’ll discuss how long it took to write the book and how he followed his dream to become a published author, including the more than fifty failed attempts along the way. Baumgartner will also discuss the book at length, including where the title came about and some of its themes of faith, courage, and the old adage of not judging a book by its cover. A long question and answer portion will follow the talk. Books can be purchased at the event, and Baumgartner will be autographing them. Profits from any book sold will benefit the Friends of the Library.

Registration is appreciated but not required. To register or learn more, call the library at 260-824-1612 or sign up online at www.wellscolibrary.org.
