You are invited to a Goshen College Afternoon Sabbatical on Tuesday, October 8, at 1:00 p.m. at Sauder Concert Hall. The presentation is entitled ” Faith, Time and Place: A Childhood in Three Acts,” by Dr. Shirley Hershey Showalter. Using her recently-published memoir Blush about growing up Mennonite in Lancaster County, PA, in the 1950s and 1960s, former president of Goshen College Shirley Hershey Showalter will talk about the three-act structure of memoir as it imitates life. Using photos, artifacts, and hymns, Showalter will illustrate how the joys, fears, and longings of her childhood led to improbable paths to Goshen, Indiana, and to the presidency.
This event is free and open to the public. For additional information or questions, please call (574) 535-7565.
