How to Raise Viking Children and Other Tales of Woe, a Book Signing by Troy Maynard

05:30 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue

On Tuesday, June 12th, beginning at 5:30 p.m., The Venue will host a reading and book signing by Troy Maynard, a gamer, father of three, and master of none. Between taking frequent pictures of meals and occasional pillaging (alleged), he writes his thoughts on life from his Mead Hall in the rolling hills of southern Indiana. Ransacking passing ships doesn’t pay the bills, so he also works in the software industry, where he gets to use his tantrum-management skills on a daily basis.
In his new book, How to Raise Viking Children and Other Tales of Woe, you can read his stories and thoughts on parenting, His wisdom and wit make for great reading. For this signing Troy will read selected excerpts of his book, and autograph any and all copies.

Jamie has won awards for her beautiful vocals and songwriting. She’s driving down from the Martinsville IN area to share her music with us this evening. Also sharing the stage is Paul Bertsch who has come to out attention after performing at an Open Guest ‘Chair-a-Chair’ last summer. He is a wonderful Singer-Songwriter with some fairly complex music and very well written lyrics. Also on the program this evening is Mr. Robby Lake. We met Robbie at one of our Open Guest Chairs too! This fellow is a very good writer, and an above average (way above average) musician. His music is Contemporary – Alternative – Pop and is a lot of fun to listen to. We think you’ll enjoy this program of mostly Local talent and we look forward to hearing some new songs on our Open Guest ‘Share-a-Chair’.
