BILL RABINOWITZ, sportswriter for The Columbus Dispatch, will discuss his book, Buckeye Rebirth: Urban Meyer, An Inspired Team, and a New Era at Ohio State. This book takes you inside Ohio State’s Undefeated 2012 season. When Urban Meyer was hired, following the forced resignation of former head coach Jim Tressel, he was looking forward to taking the team into postseason play. However when the final ruling came from NCAA regarding rules violations, it stated that Ohio State would be banned from postseason play in 2012. With that disappointment as a backdrop, Meyer and his team set out to make their 2012 season the best ever.......and they did just that, becoming the nation’s only undefeated team.
Buckeye Rebirth is the exciting story that tells it all. It will make a perfect gift for your Buckeye friends and family!

Historian and University of Dayton professor LARRY SCHWEIKART will introduce A Patriot’s History of the Modern World, Volume 2 that he coauthored with Doug Dougherty. It is an expansive and dynamic portrait of the era that built the American we know today. Further, it shows how the four interdependent pillars of American exceptionalism paved the way for America to become the global leader it is today: Ownership and protection of private property; The Christian basis of American morals, as prescribed by the Founding Fathers; Free enterprise and the ability to pursue personal wealth; and Common law, which bubbles up from the people, rather than from behind closed doors.
