Pirate Read event set for Nov. 2

A Pirate Read event, “Triumph over Tragedy” featuring Bobby Petrocelli will be held at 4 p.m. Nov. 2 in Hendrix Theatre.


Petrocelli is a motivational speaker inspired by his own story of survival following his wife’s death when a drunk driver crashed through a bedroom wall into their suburban home. He has authored several books, including “10 Seconds Will Change Your Life Forever.”

The event is part of the Pirate Read series. The 2011 Pirate Read selection “Picking Cotton,” tells how two people’s lives were intertwined through a case of misidentification and a prison sentence that followed.
