He did a terrific program for us two years ago on 's Excellent Adventure. That one was attended by 85 people and fun was had by all. Recently, Matthew launched a tour for his new book, The President is a Sick Man: Wherein the Supposedly Virtuous Survives a Secret Surgery at Sea and Vilifies the Courageous Newspaperman Who Dared Expose the Truth. See the web site.
Matthew's appearance at the drew 116 people.
My goal is for Wheeling to top that.
Yes the book is about Grover Cleveland. Yes it's a Tuesday afternoon. But it's time to stand up and be counted! Wheeling, can beat that score. Let's prove that Wheeling loves books, even books about obscure presidents. (Actually Grover Cleveland and Wheeling have a fascinating historical link. Find out what it is.)
NOTE: WE ARE ENCOURAGING EVERYONE WHO ATTENDS TO MAKE A DONATION OF AT LEAST ONE DOLLAR TO TORNADO RELIEF. THERE WILL BE A COLLECTION BOX AT THE FRONT. Details below.
I thank you. Sean Duffy, Ohio County Public Library
PS-Please spread the word! We are encouraging those who attend the Matthew Algeo (Grover Cleveland) event to help us beat Kansas City to bring a donation of at least one dollar for tornado relief. The donation will go to the Red Cross through West Virginia Tornado relief and tickets for that benefit concert will also be available at the program (see below).
WV Tornado Relief was started to raise money for the victims of the recent tornadoes in Alabama and other southern states. We are a group of musicians and small businesses coming together for the common goal of helping another community. Our main project is a concert that will be held in June but you can donate anytime! 100% of all monies raised will go towards the victims. Please join us and help in anyway that you can! Thank you!
