Two Topekans team up for a Barnes & Noble book signing
Two senior gentlemen, Max Manning (87) and Charles Kayser (72), whose books were published within a month of each other early in 2015, are teaming up for new adventures. One adventure is a joint book signing at Topeka’s Barnes & Noble at 2:00 pm, July 25, 2015. Both Max and Charlie have been featured in Topeka Capital Journal articles and met for the first time after Charlie’s interview. The title of Max’s book is For His Glory, and Charlie’s is A Deeper Life Primer: An Antidote to Shallow Living. Their books compliment each other in such a way that both Max and Charlie would like others to read both books. When you read these two books, you’ll see why.
Max L. Manning is the Director of Global Missions, Inc.. Rev. Manning has spent over 60 years traveling to 64 nations providing missionary work, food, clothing and medical care to those in need.
