By Sonja Cropper, The Ripley Library –
On Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the Ripley Library meeting room, Keith Maginn author of “(Extra) Ordinary” Inspirational Stories Of Everyday People, will talk about his book, followed by a book signing.
The book is published by KiCam Projects. KiCam Projects was founded in 2015 by Brown County resident Lori Highlander to promote great storytelling that makes a difference in people’s lives.
The mission statement for KiCam Projects states “KiCam Projects is a multimedia projects company dedicated to changing the world one great story at a time. We bring to life true stories that inform and inspire, and we donate a portion of the proceeds from our books, films and music to nonprofit organizations chosen by our collaborators.”
Inside each seemingly ordinary person is an extraordinary story waiting to be told. That’s what author Keith Maginn discovered when he dug deeper to learn about many of the people in his everyday life.
One friend had overcome an addiction to crack cocaine. Another had lost a son in a tragic accident and started a foundation in his honor. Yet another was a survivor of the worst plane crash in Central American history.
Each of the stories featured in “(Extra) Ordinary” will touch your heart, stir your soul, and open your eyes to the amazing people who are all around you. You’ll learn to look for the incredible in the seemingly mundane, and you’ll be reminded that everyone – including you – is anything but ordinary.
Keith Maginn believes that writing to help and inspire others is his life’s purpose. A native of Cincinnati, Keith earned a degree in sociology from Miami University before going to work for AmeriCorps and Habitat for Humanity. Maginn has authored two other books. The release date for his current book is September 13th, making Ripley his second book event.
This is a free program and everyone is welcome to attend this event and hear tales of heroism and resilience that are positive, uplifting and inspirational. For further information, www. facebook.com/Ripleyohiolibrary or 937-392-4871.
The Ripley Library is located at the corner of US 52 and Main Street in downtown Ripley, Ohio.
