(FOX19) - Northern Kentucky One Book One Community -- the reading program that encourages everyone to read the same book -- announces this year’s selection -- All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling-Down House by David Giffels.
All the Way Home follows the side-splitting and sometimes maddening travails of Giffels and his wife as they attempt to restore a crumbling mansion. Their many adventures include nudging the elderly ex-owner to vacate the premises and battling the wisteria vines, raccoons, squirrels, and mice that have overtaken the attic. This is the story of a young family growing into itself. Through the ups and downs of their project they are forced to deal with frustration, loss, perseverance and doubt. David Giffels currently teaches Creative Non-Fiction as an Assistant Professor at the University of Akron.
