An Evening with Vick Mickunas
The Friends of Wright Library are sponsoring An Evening with Vick Mickunas, a special program to encourage new members to join and to provide a fun opportunity for current members to renew their membership for the 2010-2011 year.  Book reviewer extraordinaire Vick Mickunas will be the guest speaker on Wednesday, August 4th at 7 p. m. in the library meeting room.  Mickunas will share anecdotes about the hundreds of authors he has interviewed.  No advanced registration is necessary.

Vick Mickunas introduced his program "The Book Nook" on WYSO Public Radio in Yellow Springs in 1995.  Over the years he has interviewed over 1400 authors.  He also wrote regular book reviews for the WYSO radio magazine "Sounds Local" and in 2004 he began writing his weekly Book Nook column for the Dayton Daily News and the other Cox Ohio newspapers.

Mickunas has served on the board of the Antioch Writer's Workshop.  He is a founding member of the board of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize.  When he speaks to library groups he enjoys sharing anecdotes about writers and the interviewing process.
