Orion Samuelson at Read Between the Lynes

WOODSTOCK – Read Between the Lynes, 129 Van Buren St., Woodstock, will be hosting WGN radio personality and Huntley resident Orion Samuelson, author of “You Can’t Dream Big Enough.”

Reading, discussion and questions begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Stage Left Café, 121 Van Buren St., Woodstock. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

Author signing will begin at 6:45 p.m. at Read Between the Lynes, 129 Van Buren St.

Samuelson's remarkable career is packaged in the Collector's Edition of "You Can't Dream Big Enough." Readers will enjoy dozens of stories about his 60-plus years on the air – 52 of them at WGN Radio – and the many legendary broadcasters with whom he has worked. 

Orion tells how his big dreams began amid humble beginnings on a remote Wisconsin dairy farm; how a childhood illness altered his life, as well as his near-death experiences later in life and how his wife, Gloria, saved his life. 

Orion's lifelong dedication to the American farmer has earned him innumerable accolades, including a seat in the National Radio Hall of Fame, but the one he treasures most is, "the American farmer's best friend."
