Faith, Time and Place: A childhood in Three Acts

Dr. Shirley Hershey Showalter

Using her recently-published memoir Blush about growing up Mennonite in Lancaster County, Pa., in the 1950's and 1960's, 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, Ind., and to the presidency.
