Brett Miller Local Author Talk
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Hanson resident Brett Miller will discuss his book It's A Beautiful Day to Save Lives. Mr. Miller is an Army veteran, physical therapist, and owner of 110 Fitness, the largest wellness center in the world for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. Start off the new year hearing Mr. Miller share his inspiring experiences with saving lives, embracing hope, and finding purpose. Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing.

It's A Beautiful Day To Save Lives is a powerful memoir of a combat medic's journey through life as he recognizes his destiny from very early in his young childhood. This life-long journey proves to be very courageous and challenging in the face of adversity. From life-saving situations on a plane to life-saving situations in the military, the author inevitably is placed right where he needs to be as if it was planned by the universe until the roller coaster of emotions and life's pressure puts his own life in jeopardy. This is the story of how one young boy driven by honor and duty for the sake of humanity saves many lives and consequently is forced to save his own life. From the ups and downs of suicide, alcoholism, and depression comes the transformation of passion into purpose, saving one life at a time with an ending that takes the author on a full carousel ride validating his universal destiny. It's A Beautiful Day To Save Lives is a refreshing and inspirational reminder that we all have a gift and we should share it for a better community and a better planet.

There are many spaces available.
