Find Your Bike: An Inspirational MessagernThe Independence Public Library is proud to host David Hale Sylvester, author, award-winning documentarian, and founder of Contribute2 at 6:00 pm in the Community Room. Sylvester will be riding RAGBRAI® this year and making a stop at IPL to share his story. Sylvester will share his personal reaction to the 9/11 tragedy, his experiences pedaling across the world spreading his inspirational message, and his choice to deal with his grief in losing a beloved friend by proving to himself that people are inherently good. In his memoir, Traveling at the Speed of Life he will make you want to \'find your own bike.” This presentation is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary.
