If you want to know about potatoes or presidential humor, listen up. Kerry Tymchuk, CFM principal, will make two public appearances speaking of his experiences as a co-author of biographies.
On Tuesday, November 30, the Oregon State University Foundation and Reser's Fine Foods will host a reception celebrating publication of "No Small Potatoes,” the autobiography of the late Al Reser, who died in April. Tymchuk assisted with the book about Reser, who was chairman of the board of his family-owned business.
The just-published book highlights the food products company’s founding in the 1950s and its growth into a diversified producer of specialty foods such as side dishes, dips and Mexican foods. The event will be held 5:30 p.m. at the Benson Hotel in Portland.
Tymchuk will talk about his writing experiences with other famous personalities in an appearance at the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce breakfast, 7 a.m., December 14. He will present a light-hearted look at politics through the words of, and anecdotes about, America’s wittiest political leaders.
He assisted former U.S. Senator Bob Dole in two books about funny, embarrassing, insightful and biting comments and situations from some of America’s most respected, controversial and otherwise famous political leaders. Tymchuk also assisted former Red Cross director Elizabeth Dole with a book, and co-authored “One Tough Mother,” the autobiography of Columbia Sportswear Chair Gert Boyle.
