Ohio native Paul L. Gaus is a recently retired professor of Chemistry at The College of Wooster and is co-author of the best-selling senior textbook, Basic Inorganic Chemistry. Paul took an interest in writing fiction, and began to write mystery novels set in Holmes County, Ohio, spawning the popular Ohio Amish Mystery series. The sixth and latest book in the series, Separate from the World, explores the rift between two Amish factions in the wake of a murder and suicide, one that favors the use of medicine and college study, and the other that rejects any outside influence. He lectures widely about Amish culture and lives in Wooster, OH. ***** Reading and dinner tickets are $25; Reading-only tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children twelve and under.
