Outside the Amish - Where are they Now?

Author Brenda Nixon will share amazing stories and insights based on unique experiences with the Amish culture, with emphasis on the Swartsentruber Order, when she visits John McIntire Library on Saturday, August 29 at 2:30 p.m. Her book, Beyond Buggies and Bonnets: Seven true stories of former Amish, chronicles her experiences "adopting" two Amish runaways, befriending and helping others, and as the mother-in-law to a former-Amish. Copies of her book will be available for purchase and signing.
