The Tiffin-Seneca Public Library will welcome Kevin Hines, author of Cracked, Not Broken: Surviving and Thriving After A Suicide Attempt on Thursday, October 10 at 7:00 p.m. at Tiffin University’s Marion Center as part of the third annual Foundation Speakers series.

In 2000, Kevin attempted to take his life by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. Many factors contributed to his miraculous survival, and Kevin now travels the world sharing his story of hope, healing, and recovery. In the summer of 2013, Kevin released his bestselling memoir titled Cracked, Not Broken: Surviving and Thriving After A Suicide Attempt. Copies of the book are available at the Library. The e-book is available on the Ohio Digital Library and the Libby app, and the audiobook can be found on hoopla.

Books will be available for purchase at the event, and a Q & A session and book signing will follow the author’s presentation. The event is free and open to the public.

The Foundation Speakers series brings an outstanding writer, artist, or public figure to inform and engage the community once each year and provides the chance to gain insight and inspiration directly from those helping to shape our culture and our world.  The series is made possible through generous funding by the Tiffin-Seneca Library Foundation and the many donors who have contributed to the Foundation over the years.  Tiffin-Seneca Public Library is grateful for this on-going opportunity to serve our patrons. Please call 419-447-3751 or log on to www.tiffinsenecalibrary.org for more information.
