On Nov. 9, author and Middletown native John Kiesewetter will tell his favorite stories at 6 p.m. in the Miriam G. Knoll Campus and Community Center.

As a young lefthander growing up in Middletown in the 1960s, Kiesewetter’s favorite Reds player was Nuxhall, whom Kiesewetter met and interviewed many times as a Cincinnati Enquirer TV/radio columnist. Kiesewetter is donating a portion of the book sales to the Nuxhall Foundation for the Joe Nuxhall Scholarship Fund. The book will be available after the program for $20. Cash and check will only be accepted.

This program is free and open to the public. A box meal is provided 15 minutes before the program starts. Miami University requires face coverings indoors regardless of vaccination status.
