Meet Dennis Kucinich Tuesday

Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, will be signing copies of his book, "The Courage to Survive," at Gibson's Bookstore on South Main Street at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 20. I've read some good things about the book and how he talks about the difficulty growing up. I won't be able to go but I hope some people are able to go.
