Storrs Campus
UConn Barnes & Noble, Downtown Storrs

Join us as at UConn Barnes & Noble in Downtown Storrs as we welcome Michael Beattie to discuss "Can a Burger Save a Man?"

"Can a Burger Change a Man?" from Michael Beattie is a memoir of a man on a mission, detailing the adventure that begins after the author triumphs over severe medical battles, a triumph that he consummates with a promise to God—and thus begins the solo epic as Beattie, at age sixty-seven, rides his bike unassisted around the United States to raise awareness for the veteran hunger problem.

Michael Beattie, a Vietnam era vet and former police officer from Mansfield, Connecticut, turned spokesperson for hungry veterans, is the author of "Can a Burger Change a Man?", an astonishing true story of one man’s war against poverty unjustly afflicting the nation’s war vets.
