THRIFT STORE SAINTS
Tuesday, January 14, 6:30 pm
Thrift Store Saints is a collection of true stories based on Jane's experiences serving the poor at a St. Vincent de Paul thrift store in the inner city of Kalamazoo. Knuth is a reluctant new volunteer at the store, sharing that her middle-class, suburban, church-going background has not prepared her well for this kind of work. By the end of the book, Knuth has undergone a transformation of sorts, and neither she nor we can ever view the poor in the same way again.
Jane will also discuss the publishing process of her books. Register at 343-7747 or click here to register. Refreshments served.
