Real kids. Real stories. Real issues. That is what Zuiker Press is all about.
Its co-founder, Anthony Zuiker, will talk about this latest venture with his wife, Michelle, a Buffalo native, and his career as the creator and former executive producer of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” the long-running CBS series, during the Rotary Club of Grand Island’s dinner meeting at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at the Buffalo Launch Club.
The meeting is open to the public but seats are limited and reservations are required. Dinner cost is $25. Reservations may be made by emailing [email protected] or calling 716-578-8948 by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21.
In this next stage of his career, Zuiker and his wife, the former Michelle Territo, a long-time educator of grammar school children, are taking storytelling in a new direction – one focused on helping kids heal and understand themselves and others.
“I believed these books and stories could help kids,” Zuiker said. “What I did not expect was how Michelle and I would grow as people from this experience.”
The first four titles of books Zuiker Press is presently distributing to school districts in WNY, including the Grand Island School District are: “Mend: A Story of Divorce,” “Click: A Story of Cyberbullying,” “Imperfect: A Story of Body Image” and “Colorblind: A Story of Racism.”
