Meeting: Ziegler Reception Room

Ryan Rogers, local author, will read excerpts from "Old Wisdom from an Old Head," a new book reminiscing on humorous stories of his dad's many amusing idioms.

Did your father ever say something so frequently or so profound that it stuck with you all your life? Join us in honor of Father's Day, and bring your story for a chance to have your own father's words immortalized in a book! Ryan Rogers, local author, will read excerpts from "Old Wisdom from an Old Head", a new book reminiscing on humorous stories of his dad's many amusing idioms. Ryan will also be accepting audience-contributed stories for an expanded edition of the book in preparation, collecting proverbs from around the state. Come share a laugh at the library and honor fathers with us!

About the Author:

Ryan Rogers wrote "Old Wisdom from an Old Head" to honor fathers by explaining the admiration he's developed for his dad's patience and diligence in his upbringing. Originally presented as a Father’s Day present, Ryan knew that other families would share similar feelings, and felt he should make the book more widely available. 

Ryan studied physics at the University of Central Arkansas and chemistry at the University of Arkansas before beginning the innovations company, TRR Designs, where he leads the research and development of diverse products and intellectual property. In his spare time, he enjoys writing about his personal musings and insights on his own website (www.tryanrogers.com). Ryan and his wife and daughter currently live in Bella Vista, Arkansas.
