Our presenter for this evening is Ben Speggen, a graduate of Gannon University in 2007 with a BA and 2009 with his MA in English Language and Literature/Letters.
Ben Speggen eats, sleeps, and breathes stories. From editing, writing, and researching at Erie Reader, where he serves as the publication's managing editor, to teaching writing and literature as an adjunct lecturer at Gannon and Mercyhurst Universities.
Ben Speggen is constantly working with words, observing how they shape and make meaning in order to reveal the world around us through the art of storytelling.
Working in media and being a social creature, Speggen is continually fascinated by the world of social media. And since others often seem interested in it, too, he shares his notions through the city and beyond, serving as a guest lecturer to various organizations looking to tap into the evolving ways in which we tell our stories.
Ben also hosts the community affairs-based program Weekend All Things Erie on WQLN, which airs Saturday mornings at 7 and is available online.
Please join us on March 4, 2015 at 6:00 pm, regardless of weather, for our pre-dinner cocktail and chat time and remember to bring your friends and acquaintances. Reservations are required.
Please remember to make your reservation.
