Following its successful Juried Art Show last week, members of the Sampson Arts Council are now excited to host a book signing with North Carolina author Dr. Marvin Hall later this month and members are inviting the community to join in the afternoon of literary discussion and fellowship.
On Sunday, Sept. 22 at 3 p.m., Hall will visit the Victor R. Small House to discuss his latest book, “Back to the Basics: The Essence in Communication and Relationships.”
According to information provided by the Sampson Arts Council, Hall currently works at North Carolina A&T State University in the psychology department and has been recognized for his academic achievements and excellence in the U.S. and abroad. He has been among the Who’s Who in America six times and was selected as one of the Outstanding Intellectuals of the 21st Century by the Biographical Centre of Cambridge, England. As a result of his post-doctorate psychology work at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, he earned a membership spot in the Outstanding Student Honor Society.
Additionally, Hall has created his own consulting company, MCH Consultants. He often serves as a speaker or facilitator for a variety of seminars and workshops.
In a synopsis provided by the Sampson Arts Council, Hall describes his new book as a “brief but poignant work that captures the essence of two foundational and lifelong concepts that is needed in all walks of life. Those two concepts are none other than communication and relationships.”
“The manner in which we communicate interpersonally, intrapersonally, and group dynamics directly impact the life span of human development more than anything else known to mankind regardless of how we view life from the time of conception to death,” Hall continues. “Communication in relationship seems to be inextricably connected to life itself.”
Hall’s in-depth discussion of his new book will begin at 3:15 p.m. Afterwards, his book will be available for purchase and signing.
“Everyone will have a chance to ask questions and speak with Dr. Hall personally,” shared Kara Donatelli, executive director of the Sampson Arts Council, adding that the event is free, open to the general public, and that light refreshments will be served. “Dr. Hall grew up in Elizabethtown and we are excited to help him promote his new book.”
In addition to this most recent work, Hall has published four other books — “A Call to Leadership,” “Domestic Violence Through the Eyes of a Woman and Child,” “Medications and Living a Healthy Life Style,” and “Pertinent Information on Alzheimer’s Disease.”
The Victor R. Small House is located at 709 College St. in Clinton.
