SECOND SATURDAYS AUTHOR EVENT – JOHN CAGNO AND PAUL LONARDO
Saturday, March 12th, 2pm

John Cagno’s autobiographical book, Boy in a Box: A Personal Journey about Overcoming Life’s Obstacles, from a Father’s Abandonment to a Catastrophic Injury, and the Powers of Inspiration, Motivation and Leadership to Cultivate Positive Change, written with Paul Lonardo, is an account of the lessons John Cagno has learned from the challenges in his life.  In John’s words, “I believe that people are basically all the same, and that what differentiates us is how we deal with our problems. I also believe that storytelling can be the best medicine in helping us get through life’s many challenges. Those of us who are willing to share our journey in an honest and candid way can help alleviate someone else’s suffering and sorrows. I want to inspire, motivate, and empower the ordinary person, so that they might be able to realize their full potential.”
