CULTURE | Granville | Author Talk with John Kropf

April 21, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Join us for an electrifying presentation and reading by the esteemed author John Kropf as he takes us through his latest book, “Color Capital of the World: Growing Up with the Legacy of a Crayon Company.” The book is a compelling tale that chronicles the fascinating history of a crayon company through the eyes of one of the founding family’s descendants.
Through Kropf’s captivating storytelling, you’ll be transported to an era of build, boom, and bust, where a small town in Ohio became the epicenter of crayon and paint production, earning the title of the “Color Capital of the World.” You’ll be awed by the human story behind the crayon, discovering the untold secrets and behind-the-scenes drama that made the company a true icon of its time.
The event will include refreshments, a presentation, a reading from the book, and a Q&A session. This event is free and open to the public, and copies of John’s book will be available for sale.
