Mason City Public Library Program presented by Jim Collison
September 27 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Jim Collison, how-to non-fiction author
Jim Collison, Mason City author and book publisher for more than 59 years, will explain why and how he wrote his newest book, “Simply How to Meditate: Meditation Made Easy for Beginners and Busy People.” Collison’s book writing and publishing career spans from 1963 through today.
It began with hand-setting headlines and printing books at the beginning of the offset era…to today, publishing his newest paperback book and Kindle e-book on Amazon. He’ll tell how he organized and crafted his sixth how-to, instructional book. And he’ll answer questions about the challenges and difficulties of self-publishing in the electronic era.
Mr. Collison was a reporter for the Mason City Globe Gazette from 1958-1963. He was the only newspaper reporter at the scene of the Buddy Holly crash in 1959. The story that the Globe Gazette published about the crash went out to the world thru the Associated Press.
