GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOOD) – Every year Calvin University welcomes the community to their January Series, a free 15 day lecture series that takes place each January on their campus. The series invites speakers from the community and across the country to speak about important issues to inspire cultural renewal and make us better global citizens. One of the prominent 2020 speakers is author, columnist, radio host, and philanthropist Mitch Albom who will be talking about his latest memoir, Finding Chika.
