Geoffrey Hatcher is a noted author and actor, and several of his productions have been performed on Broadway.
Now he is back in Wintersville and sharing his experiences through the Herald-Star Speaker Series, which WTRF sponsors the event.
This is the 10th annual speaker series, and Herald-Star’s Ross Gallabrese says Jeffrey is an old friend joining the tradition of the event.
