Bay Village Branch

Meeting Room A-116+B-117(75)

Join us when author Kyle Robinson visits to discuss his new memoir, Wandering Spark.

About the author:

Kyle V. Robinson is a graduate of Kent State University and Western Michigan University Cooley Law School. Kyle, currently, resides in Ohio with his dog Booker. You can find him running on trails and at kylevrobinson.com

Wandering Spark is a raw, soul-searching portrait of a man finding his way, challenging what people are capable of no matter their past, and coming to the realization that a grand arrival to fulfillment is intangible. Instead, what matters most is our continued growth and appreciation for life as it unfolds along the way.

At only four years old, Kyle Robinson's life changes dramatically when a man he calls Big Bad Ben, or Triple B becomes his stepfather. Over the next decade, Kyle and his siblings live in terror daily, trying anything to escape his physical and emotional abuse.

With nobody to turn to, Kyle's urge to escape reality leads him to unhealthy relationships, destructive habits, and multiple run-ins with the law. Still in high school, Kyle is arrested, facing jail, and forced to defend himself in court, altering the course of his life.

Kyle's story is a testament to the fact that redemption rarely takes a straight line, and Kyle soon learns that finding fulfillment isn't solely about racking up impressive accolades and impressing others. The spark flickering within him that kept him soldiering ahead against all odds is the same one that keeps him on the move, always looking for something more, from the Midwest to San Francisco to New York, and into the remote areas of the Pacific Northwest, and beyond.

Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
