Local Author Marcus Jones To Appear At The Uptown Branch Library Tuesday

Excerpt from his book, Everyone Has A Story, This Is Mine: "At 7:49 a.m. on April 17th 1995, I could run a mile in just over two minutes. I could leap a six-foot fence without hesitation. I was a 'street entrepreneur' making very good money and living life to the fullest.

By 7:54 a.m., I became paralyzed from the waist down for life, was under arrest and on my way to jail for the third time having lost all bodily functions. What should have been a devastating incident became a defining moment of success over failure; hope over despair; and redemption over incarceration."

The Uptown Branch Library is located at 929 West Buena.
