"REFUSE TO DROWN"
Nov. 9, 6:30 p.m., 200 AF
"Refuse to Drown" author, Tim Kreider will speak in 200 AF on Wednesday, Nov. 9 from 6:30-8 p.m. "Refuse to Drown" is the true story of a father's despair and the type of perseverance that can lead to hope and healing. Here's a synopsis:  Manheim Township, Pa., was rocked by a seemingly random triple-homicide during the summer of 2007. There were no witnesses, very few leads and no solid suspects. As days turned into weeks and the crime remained unsolved, the small-town neighborhood was filled with sadness, questions, and a growing sense of fear. One month after the murders, Tim Kreider's son, Alec, was committed to a mental health hospital. One of Alec's best friends had been one of the murder victims, and Tim feared that the loss had pushed his long-troubled son over the edge. Tim didn't realize that his world was about to come crashing down around him. Open to campus and community. To arrange for extra credit, contact cohen@kutztown.edu.
