John L. Devereueawax, III will appear at a book release and signing and community fellowship event from 2-4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 8, at McIntosh Elementary School, 525 N. Pierpont Ave. in Rockford. This day has been declared John L. Devereueawax, III Day in Rockford.
Devereueawax was a rising star on the Rockford political scene until a massive, paralyzing stroke in 1993 changed his life in a matter of mere seconds. A highly-regarded community leader, his story of faith, perseverance and the courage to live has been long awaited. With the aid of his cancer-survivor daughter, author and inspirational speaker, Domonique Simone, the community of Rockford and readers will be inspired and uplifted by this thought-changing account of one man’s 19-year journey to faith.
Devereueawax will give a testimony on his personal work and struggles at the John Devereueawax Playground at McIntosh School Gymnasium. His book, Willpower, co-authored with his daughter, will be available for purchase. His souvenir book, Celebration of CommunityBuilding and Unity, will be given to attendees. TheWillpower book will also be available online at willpowerbook.com. Or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
