A Most Fortunate Event
On October 24, Capital sophomore Lindi Cisco got to meet the author she credits with inspiring her read. David Handler, a.k.a. – Lemony Snicket was the featured speaker at this year’s Gerhold Lecture and the machinations of the stories she read in early childhood came to life in the author’s personality.Lindi, a Business Management major from St. Mary’s Ohio, was in attendance for the lecture and the Q and A in the Bridge of Learning prior to the event. She shared her thoughts on the experience.“When I was in elementary school, I didn’t like to read. I don’t remember why, but I do know that I always had a hard time finding books that I was interested in. Fortunately, I was introduced to the book, “The Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning,” by Lemony Snicket. Not only did the series pique my interest with its mysterious, terrible happenings, but I also found an interest in reading.”
“He had an exciting and lively personality that showed his true self to us," said Lindi Cisco. "He was real, accepting of our questions, and opened up enough to give his readers a new perspective of him."
