Katie Spotz, adventurer and author, talks new book at Mentor Library

Meet Katie Spotz and hear about her new book, "Just Keep Rowing," on Nov. 17 at Mentor Public Library.
Want to know what it's like to row across the Atlantic Ocean—to spend 70 days with nothing but your boat to keep you company—or to swim the Allegheny River or bicycle across the country with a broken pelvis?

There are two ways to find out.

You could read Katie Spotz's new book, Just Keep Rowing, which talks about her adventures and what she has learned from them. Or you could ask her yourself when she speaks at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17, at Mentor Public Library's Main Branch.

Spotz is a Mentor native and Mentor High School graduate. She uses her adventures as a way to raise money and awareness for clean-water projects all around the world.

Her book shares 70 life lessons that she learned while crossing the Atlantic, one for each day she spent at sea.

After her talk, Spotz will also be on hand for a book signing and meet & greet.

The talk is free and open to everyone. Moreover, the first 35 who arrive at her talk will receive a free copy of Just Keep Rowing.

However, we do ask that people register for the program beforehand. They can sign up on Mentor Library's website or by calling 440-255-8811 ext. 216.
