Join us on Saturday, March 9 at 1:30 pm for a discussion with author Mark Saviers.  He will be discussing his book, Flipped: How One Man's Tragic Fall Became a Story of Surrender, Faith, and Hope.  This book celebrates the inspirational story of Tommy Van Zandt.

When Tommy Van Zandt fell from a ladder, it didn't just flip his world--it flipped the world of everyone around him.  In an instant, a 49-year-old man who seemed to have it all--a loving wife, two wonderful sons, a thriving business, a beautiful home, and a close-knit extended family--found himself immobile on the ground, his neck broken, and his next breath very much in doubt. He was certain death was at his door.  Flipped tells the story of how God helped Tommy survive and then thrive, while also working in and through the lives of Tommy's friends and family. What they found was something unexpected--that the greatest blessings of life aren't always delivered as the answer you sought in deep, sincere prayer.

Copies of the book will be sold at the event.
