Rick Weber Book Signing
November 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
FORT MYERS, Fla. – Award-winning author Rick Weber, formerly of the Fort Myers News-Press, will sign copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Angels and the Miraculous, Nov. 4 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 13751 Tamiami Trail in Fort Myers.
This is Weber’s fifth contribution to a book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. This one features inspirational true stories from people who’ve been visited by angels and blessed by miracles. Weber tells the story of how his father’s ascension to heaven was delayed by an extraordinary encounter with a human angel. It was too powerful to deny—even for an understated man like his father.
Weber worked for five years at the News-Press, where he covered the Dolphins and later served as lead sports columnist, finishing in the top 10 in the nation twice (for column writing and feature story) and winning four state awards. While at the Modesto Bee, he won the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism for a package of stories about teenage runaways. He also wrote an inspirational biography, Pink Lips and Fingertips.
