SHERIDAN — The Friends of the Sheridan Library will host a reception for author Jerry Aaker at 4:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 5, at the library.

Aaker’s latest book, “Spirituality of Service: Reflections on a Life-Long Journey of Faith and Work Among the World’s Poor,” published by Pfeifer-Hamilton Publishers, recently won a Silver Medal in the Inspirational category of the 2013 Independent Book Publishers Association’s Benjamin Franklin Awards.

The reception will feature readings by the author, and a discussion on writing and publishing in today’s market.

For more than 40 years, Jerry Aaker and his wife, Judy, accompanied people living in poverty.

Through his work with Lutheran World Relief, Heifer International, Agros International and Church World Service, Aaker helped establish and manage sustainable development programs from South America to Asia.

Now retired, the Aakers live in Montana.
