Marc Brown, an Erie native and author of the best-selling Arthur books, will bring his love of reading to Gannon University during a Jan. 25 guest lecture. The lecture is free and open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. in the Yehl Ballroom of Gannon’s Waldron Campus Center, 124 West Seventh St. Brown’s lecture will focus on the importance of parents reading to children and helping young readers develop an interest in reading through picture books. Immediately following the lecture, Brown will be available to sign copies of his books. Gannon University’s Erie-GAINS (Gannon Alliances to Improve Neighborhood Sustainability) program is purchasing some of Brown’s books and donating them to Emerson-Gridley Elementary School in the Erie School District.
