Author’s Night - Friday February 16th

Join us for February’s Friends of the Library’s Author’s Night on Friday the 16th at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville. Doors open at 6:00 and the program starts at 7:00. Come early for a nice supper and the groovy music of Bill Westfall and J.R. Price.

Poet Paul Tyx will delight us with readings from his recently published book ...and I Laughed, poems of hope, love, friendship, and family. Paul believes in poetry’s value in today’s world; writing from the heart he never hides behind language but seeks to share our common humanity, to be understood.

Born in 1953 in Cincinnati of a Polish-American family Paul left college to embark on a search for life and God traveling through America, working jobs, and writing at night. He says he delighted in sampling his homeland in all its diversity. Finally making his way back to Ohio he became a family man, worked at a sheltered workshop for disabled adults, and kept writing.

Today he devotes himself fulltime to poetry, his wife Angela, and his grandchildren by sons Daniel and Sam. Be prepared to be touched, to laugh, and to see the world a little bit differently. Anyone who knows Paul has enjoyed his unique, contagious laughter and will want to join right in!
