George Drake will present an author talk with readings and sign copies of his latest publication, “Mentor: Life and Legacy of Joe Rosenfield” on Tuesday, May 28th, from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, at Drake Community Library. Mr. Drake, for whom the library is named, is a former president of Grinnell College and has been a resident of the community for most of the last 40 years.
Joe Rosenfield served as Trustee of Grinnell College from 1941 to 2000 among his many other outstanding accomplishments and pursuits as a lawyer, businessman, and philanthropist. Drake’s extensive research of Rosenfield, coupled with his personal history with Rosenfield and Grinnell College, bring this story to life as only Drake can do.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the book signing and are currently available for sale at Pioneer Bookshop, 933 Main Street.
