Fort Dodge native Steve Shanks will hold a book signing from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Book World in the Crossroads Mall. His book, "Take My Heart and Make it Break," tells of his journey away from God and back again. The publisher describes the book as "living proof that life without God is a downward spiral and life with God is life at its best."
Shanks said he had a "life-changing" experience at the end of his first and only year at West Des Moines Dowling High School; the book describes that event and what happened after.
Shanks grew up in Fort Dodge and graduated in the St. Edmond's Class of 1981. Shanks is the head principal at LeMars Community Middle School and lives in Moville. His brother, Joe Shanks, is athletic director at St. Edmond
