Kelly Lytle to speak on football, grief and family
After a football career with the Denver Broncos, Rob Lytle died at age 56. His son Kelly wrote “To Dad, From Kelly” about the man he considered his best friend. Kelly Lytle will be reading excerpts and sharing his experiences Tues., Feb. 23, 7:00 p.m., at Veteran’s Memorial, Marysville.
Lytle’s talk is part of the 2016 Author Series presented by the Friends of the Library.
Although football provides a backdrop, Lytle will speak to what the book is really about: family, zeal, and character.
Lytle was born on opening day of the 1982 NFL season in Denver, where his father Rob was a running back for the Broncos. Before turning to writing, he had worked on Wall Street for three years and spent time as a salary cap analyst in the NFL.
"The process of writing my first book showed me that many of the seemingly small decisions I've made combined to cause profound, positive changes in my life and help me overcome the grief of losing my dad," Lytle said.
In its eleventh year, the series will also include young adult fiction writer Mindy McGinnis, Tues., March 15; motivational speaker and retired basketball coach Dr. Jim Burson, Tues., April 12; and teen and adult fiction writer Laura Bickle on Tues. May 3.
Tickets for individual presentations are $5.00, or series tickets are available for $10.00. All events start at 7:00 p.m. at Veteran’s Memorial, 233 W 6th St., Marysville. For more information, visit www.marysvillelib.orgor contact Bethany Anderson, firstname.lastname@example.org; 937-642-1876.
