Author and Samford University alumnus Jon Acuff will discuss his latest book and the four big things every adventure with God requires at Live @ the Library Friday, April 8. There will be a 6 p.m. VIP reception in Harwell G. Davis Library followed by a presentation and book signing at 7 p.m. in Brock Recital Hall.
Tickets start at $25 and are also available at the Samford Box Office in Swearingen Hall. Each attendee will receive a complimentary hard copy of Do Over: Rescue Monday, Reinvent Your Work and Never Get Stuck.
Acuff’s book discusses the four areas all great careers share: relationships, skills, character and hustle. In it, he covers how to invest in these areas in order to be prepared to handle inevitable career bumps, jumps, ceilings and opportunities.
Live @ the Library is an annual event hosted by the University Library to bring awareness to accomplished Samford-affiliated authors. This year’s event will be sponsored by EBSCO, and proceeds will go to the library.
Acuff, a 1998 Samford graduate, is a New York Times bestselling author of five books. For 18 years, he has helped some of the biggest brands tell their story, including The Home Depot, Bose, Staples and the Dave Ramsey Team. His blogs have been read by more than four million people, and he has more than 250,000 Twitter followers.
Acuff lives with his wife, Jenny, and his two daughters in Franklin, Tennessee.
