Fox Cities Reads

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm


Join us at Riverview Gardens in Appleton on March 29 to celebrate the incredible story of Lawrence University's new Offensive Coordinator, Mark Speckman. In addition to his 35 years of coaching experience, Mark is also an in-demand inspirational speaker, a career that stems from his having been born without hands. Mark will share stories from his life with a message that no challenge is insurmountable.

  WHAT: A fundraiser for the Fox Cities Book Festival

WHO: Lawrence football coach and inspirational speaker Mark Speckman. Mark is also the author of Figure It Out: How I Learned to Live in a Digital World Without Digits, published in 2012 and currently in its second edition. Visit www.speckmanspeaks.com to learn more.

WHERE: Riverview Gardens, 1101 S. Oneida St., Appleton

WHEN: Tuesday, March 29, 2016. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Participants are invited to enjoy a cash bar and live music before Speckman’s talk at 7:00 p.m. Time for questions and answers will follow the talk, and Speckman’s book will be available for purchase.

TICKETS: Tickets costs $25 and are available for purchase via PayPal using the "Buy Now" button below. Tickets may also be purchased at the door or by mailing checks to Fox Cities Book Festival, P.O. Box 1014, Appleton, WI 54912-1014.
