misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Author Paulette Davidson: A Celebration of Life and Legacy    
    Contact: Reference Desk   412-372-0500 X 4   
   

Author Paulette Davidson will speak about her book A Celebration of Life and Legacy, which follows her spiritual journey with Christ and reveals her ability to submit to God's will, as her story provides you with inspiration to place your hope and faith in God. The narrative begins with a semi-autobiography focusing on family and her experiences in foster care, journeying to her bout with trauma and then to discovering the healing power of Christ. It’s a must-read for those whose faith needs restoration and will surely resonate with anyone who has struggled with adversity.

Cosponsored by the Monroeville Historical Society

 Imagine clearing out your family attic and discovering hundreds of letters written during the Civil War. That is what happened to Carleton Young, author of Voices from the Attic: The Williamstown Boys in the Civil War. The book tells the story of two brothers who witnessed and made history by fighting in the Peninsula Campaign, then at South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Wilderness, and Cedar Creek. They then preserved that history through their surprisingly detailed and insightful letters. Rediscovered after 150 years, these letters offer fascinating insight as seen through the eyes of two soldiers fighting in America’s Civil War.
