Informational Kiosk in the Main Library

Philip Gulley (Author Visit) - Oct. 20

Posted on October 11, 2016 at 11:17 AM


The Wells County Public Library is very excited to be able to host award-winning author Philip Gulley at the Main Library in Bluffton on Thursday, October 20 from 7:00-8:00 p.m.

Gulley is a Quaker pastor, writer, and speaker from Danville, Indiana. An eclectic writer, Gulley has published more than 20 books, including the acclaimed Harmony series chronicling life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, Indiana, and the best-selling Porch Talk series of inspirational and humorous essays.

He is the One Book One County author for 2016 and will be giving a presentation about his “Hope” series, which is a spin-off of the Harmony series and includes the books “A Place Called Hope,” “A Lesson in Hope,” and “A Gathering in Hope.” He will also be talking about where he finds inspiration for the books from small-town life in Indiana, which is a perfect topic for Indiana’s Bicentennial year.

Following the presentation will be a Q & A and book signing. A small amount of books from the Hope series will be available for purchase that evening or bring your own copy for signing.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Registration appreciated, but not required. For more information or to register, stop by the Main Library or Ossian Branch, call 260-824-1612, or visit the One Book One County page.

BOOK TALK – there will also be a book discussion at Sassafras at 5:45 pm before the event on that Thursday, October 20. The group will eat and discuss the book together and then walk over for Gulley’s presentation. You must be registered to attend the Book Talk. Sign up at the library or call 260-824-1612.
