A kickoff event for David Giffels's new book BARNSTORMING OHIO: TO UNDERSTAND AMERICA. This conversation will be available live, for free, on the Library's Facebook page (Facebook.com/AkronLibrary).

Popular author David Giffels - called the "The Bard of Akron" by the New York Times - speaks with WKSU News Director Andrew Meyer and the Akron Library's Bob Ethington about his new book BARNSTORMING OHIO: TO UNDERSTAND AMERICA. Based on a year traveling throughout our state, Giffels interviews a wide variety of Ohioans and assesses where our state - and the nation - currently stand as a historic Presidential election looms. Ohio is famous as a "bellwether" state, and its citizens' hopes, fears, challenges, and divisions reflect those of the nation as a whole as we face economic instability, the opioid epidemic, racial tensions, and the COVID-19 pandemic. An important and timely book, this is a must-see Main Event!

This conversation will be available live, for free, via Facebook Live exclusively at the Akron-Summit County Public Library’s Facebook page.
