Our program by Tom Dilley planned for Thursday, November 8th, will be rescheduled on a future date!
But! Keep November 8 at 7pm at the Main Library on your calendar and join us for Janet Sheeres’s serious-yet-light-hearted presentation on one set of unheralded women community builders: clergy wives. Based on her book For Better, For Worse, the stories of the wives of the first Dutch pastors in West Michigan will offer a fresh glimpse of early Grand Rapids history.
For Better, For Worse is Sheeres’s fourth book. She has also published 70 articles in national and international journals on Dutch emigration/immigration history and is the editor of Origins , the historical magazine of Calvin College’s Heritage Hall Archives.
After her program Sheeres’s book will be available for sale as will a 2018 special issue of Origins magazine focusing on women’s history!
