  12. Author Kathleen Grissom – New York Times Bestseller - Friends of Bedford Library 40th Anniversary

    October 20, 2017, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Bedford Library

    Kathleen will be talking about her books as part of our Friend’s 40th Anniversary Celebration. Born Kathleen Doepker, I was privileged as a child to be raised in Annaheim, Saskatchewan, a hamlet on the plains of Canada. Although we lived in a small, tightly knit Roman Catholic community, I was fortunate to have parents who encouraged learning about other religions and cultures and books were the windows that expanded my world. Years later, when my husband and I began restoration of an old plantation home in rural Virginia, I started to research the history of this house and the land that surrounded it. It was then I discovered an old map and there a notation that read ‘Negro Hill.’ To this day I am uncertain why those words captured me so, but I gradually set aside everything else to pursue the research and writing of the story that is now The Kitchen House.

    Bundling : A Sacred Act In this hands-on workshop we will investigate the vastness in which sacred bundles/bundling occur as part of our humanity, particularly through the female lens.
