New book addresses Washington, D.C. gridlock

Written by 

Author Jim Staggers will read from and discuss his book Messages To My Descendents — Please Fix Our Government from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Sept. 18 at the Franklin library.

Staggers is a former Chief Operating Officer and vice president at APL Corporation who retired to Franklin five years ago. He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in chemistry and attended Syracuse University to study finance and business management.

The impetus for writing the book is his frustration with the gridlock in Washington D.C., and he uses his experience as a businessman to describe his concerns.

The Macon County Public Library is located at 149 Siler Farm Road in Franklin.
