A Local man hopes to inspire the community with the release of his first book.

Dante Worth was born and raised in Rochester. Saturday, he was at Marketplace Mall autographing several copies of his book, "Free To Be Me."  In his book, Worth talks about the challenges he overcame in life to become the person he is today.  He hopes others will learn from story.

"Dealing with rejection, and abuse, and how I overcame issues... I decided to write a book to express how I overcame that, and the message that others can do the same," explained, Worth.

The Bivona Child Advocacy Center, which helps children who have been sexually or physically abused, will receive half of all the proceeds that come from Worth's book sales.
