BY THE BOOK

October 27, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

NON-PROFIT LEADER BARBARA PEREZ

One of the best ways to really know a person is to learn what they are reading and what they’ve read. It’s always fascinating to find out which books resonate and help people become the person they are today. This is the idea behind our long-running By the Book series. Join us this fall to hear three non-profit leaders who are changing Cincinnati talk about the books that informed them.
