O’Donnell book signing to take place in Fort Wayne

Huntington, Ind.—James O’Donnell, assistant professor of business and executive-in-residence at Huntington College, will sign copies of his recently published book, Letters for Lizzie, on July 9, 2004. Barnes and Noble at the Jefferson Point Shopping Center in Fort Wayne, Ind., will host O’Donnell for the book signing at 7 p.m. The public is cordially invited to attend.

Published in May by Northfield/Moody Publishing, Chicago, Letters for Lizzie focuses on O’Donnell’s personal reflections of his wife’s battle with cancer and heart disease. The book serves as a compilation of insights on faith, illness and healing.

O’Donnell describes how his family faced cancer, heart failure, kidney failure, and other chronic problems, all the while keeping faith and sharing their hope with others. The book is composed of 13 letters written to "friends back East." In the book, each of the 13 original letters is preceded by a brief reflection on thoughts and emotions not included in the original letter.

O’Donnell received his undergraduate degree from Brown University and his MBA from Columbia University. Professor O'Donnell is a certified public accountant and spent many years as an executive in the financial services industry with such firms as Fidelity Investments and the Dreyfus Corporation in Boston and New York, respectively.
