You’re invited to join us at the annual Friends of the Libraries luncheon as Vick Mickunas shares his literary adventure and interactions with writers, books, and one inspirational librarian. Vick has been interviewing authors for 30 years.

Vick created “The Book Nook” author interview program for WYSO Public Radio in 1994. His conversations with a vast range of writers, from the famous to the obscure, has been a staple on the radio dial for decades. It is currently one of the longest running radio shows about books.

In 2004 he began writing a column about books for the Dayton Daily News. His book reviews, author interviews, and musings about the book publishing industry have appeared in print ever since.

Last year he filed his 1000th weekly Book Nook column for the Cox Ohio newspapers.

Mickunas and his partner, Amy Achor, live just outside Yellow Springs with their eight cats.

A lunch buffet will be provided, which includes Italian garden salad with Italian Vinaigrette and Ranch dressings, blackened chicken, vegetarian stuffed peppers, mashed potatoes, roasted vegetable blend, assorted breads, variety of desserts, and iced tea, regular and decaf coffee.

Registration is required for this event and must be completed by April 17, 2024. All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Libraries. If you need accommodations for this event, please call (937) 775-2380 five business days in advance.
