April 29, 1963 - January 20, 2020 Paul Thomas Evans worked at the Columbus State Bookstore from 2010 – 2020.  He was a dedicated father, a proud graduate of Ohio University, loved books, and enjoyed being able to support student success by working at the CS Bookstore. Paul’s daughter, Susan Mesler-Evans, followed her father’s footsteps and also worked at the CS Bookstore for period of time.  Paul loved writing, and some of his work can be found in the book Nelsonville from A to Z.  Paul’s love of writing became a passion of his daughter, Susan, who recently published the book, Most Ardently.  The Columbus State Bookstore is proud to feature both of the book titles here. All proceeds from book sales will be donated to the  Columbus State Foundation to support student scholarships.
