					Skateboard Legend Stevie "Dread" Snyder to Attend the Jaxon Film Fest

Hot on the release of Wing Ko's documentary The Brotherhood: Chicago,
skateboard legend Stevie "Dread" Snyder, originally from Albion,
Michigan, will appear at the Jaxon Film Fest, September 29th, Carnegie
Branch Library to talk about his place in skateboarding history--he was
one of the first mid-westerners to receive recognition by an industry
leading west coast skateboard company.

Jackson, Michigan, September 20, 2012 -- Skateboard legend Steve "Stevie
Dread" Snyder will be attending the Jaxon Film Fest, September 29.
"Dread"--for short-- a skater from Albion, Michigan, is one of the
subjects of Wing Ko's documentary The Brotherhood which will screen
September 29, Carnegie Branch Library, 244 W. Michigan Ave., in Jackson,
Michigan.

Says festival director David W. King, "We are excited that our festival
is attracting the names that will be attending our festival this year.
Stevie Dread is truly a legend in skateboarding. It is exciting that we
are showing Wing Ko's documentary The Brotherhood: Chicago in which Dread
is featured; and we are privileged Stevie Dread is attending. We are
honored as well that we may be the first to display his new line of
boards."

Dread will be present after the documentary for a Q & A, autograph
signing, possible skateboard demonstration and a display of his latest
skateboard line which is to go public September 15.

The Brotherhood: Chicago documents Dread’, Jesse Neuhaus, and Eric
Murphy, sponsored riders for the famed Alva Skateboards at a time when
very few Midwestern skaters got recognition by industry-leading West
Coast companies. More than a film about the love of skateboarding, The
Brotherhood: Chicago is about pursuing one's passion as life happens.

Moving to Chicago in 1984 to attend the Art Institute of Chicago, Dread's
skating skills were quickly recognized once he landed in the Windy City.
He was sponsored by Alva Skateboards. He has lived in Chicago ever since.
