An Evening With

David Giffels


Featuring his brand new memoir Furnishing Eternity.

Popular Akron author, journalist, and educator David Giffels presents his latest book, a memoir of life, death, family, friendship – and how to build a sturdy coffin! Filled with poignant insight and many laughs, Furnishing Eternity is already generating great reviews. It may well be Giffels’ best work to date.

There will be a Q&A after Mr. Giffels presentation, and a book signing. Books will be available for purchase.
