Book lovers, Walter G. Meyer will be speaking at the Bethel Park Library on Tuesday, October 23 at 7 p.m.
Although his novel, Rounding Third, was published three years ago, it is still selling well and garnering him invitations to speak and write about the bullying crisis.
Although the book is fiction, it deals with the topics of bullying and suicide and happened to be published just when those stories started making the news.
While in the region, Meyer will be speaking at venues where he has appeared before: Penn State and SUNY Jamestown and the LGBT Center of Cleveland.
He will start off October by speaking at an anti-bullying event in San Diego, where he now lives.
The event is being promoted in conjunction with the Upper St. Clair Library.
Walt grew up in Bethel Park, went to Bethel Park High School and his mother now lives in Upper St. Clair.
