Bollywood and Southeast Kansas

We’re planning our first coffeehouse event for the book Searching for Fire. It will be at 7:00 pm this Tuesday night at 402 S Broadway in Pittsburg, Kansas. We will start with an emcee from Toastmasters and then individual talks by two authors, Mark Johnson who wrote Powerful Presentations that Connect, and then myself. There will be good conversation, refreshments, and book signings. Root Coffeehouse is really the best little coffee shop in our small university town and a hidden gem. It’s a great hangout for college students and for anyone who enjoys a nice eclectic and artsy vibe.

Mark plans to talk about how his book can help with public speaking. He also mentioned he plans to talk about his years at the university helping students to reach their potential. One particular student is from India and his book is about vampires. He went to PSU and writes about southeast Kansas in his bestselling books, The Company Red and Code Red. These are being turned into Bollywood films. I would love to see these movies! The author’s name is Shantanu Dhar. He graduated in Human Resources at PSU like me and now he works as the VP of HR for one of the biggest transportation companies in the world! He is also a bestselling author in India!

We’ll talk about this and other interesting topics like the 12 Steps to a Hero’s Journey and how it influenced the creation of Star Wars. It should be a fun night at the Root. You are more than welcome to attend. Thank you.
