Tonight I got in my car and drove an hour south on Route 81 to Hagerstown, MD to do a book talk for The Way of Improvement Leads Home at the Washington Free Library. It was a small, but interested, group. I was especially glad to see one of my former students, Abigail Andrews, who is the children’s librarian at the library.
I also learned a few days ago that the Messiah College History Department will be recognizing The Way of Improvement Leads Home on Saturday at Messiah’s Homecoming. It will be part of the History Dept. alumni reception. If you are a Messiah history alum, from any generation, I hope you can make it. The event runs from noon to 1pm in Boyer 131. Friends of the department who were not history majors are welcome to crash!
