Book Talk and Coffee Hour

Book Talk and Coffee Hour with Candice Sue Patterson
Monday December 2 at 6:30 PM
Bloomfield Public Library Community Room

Candice Sue Patterson studied at The Institute of Children’s Literature and is an active member of American Christian Fiction Writers. She lives on a hobby farm in southern Indiana with her husband and three sons in a restored farmhouse overtaken by books. When she’s not tending to her chickens, splitting wood or baking bread, she’s deep in thought at her computer working on a new story.

Coffee Hour

Coffee Hour with Book Introduction! Tues, Nov. 12th at 7pm! We’ll serve Coffee, Tea, and Cookies while Sandy Uland Taylor discusses her book “Under the North Star.” Contact the library at 812-384-4125 for more information.

Sandy Uland Taylor, daughter of Joe and Milly Uland, spent her youth in Greene County, graduating from Bloomfield High School in 1959. She taught English at Bloomfield in 1970. Taylor later spent 42 years teaching school in Monticello, Indiana. Four years ago in the White County Historical Society library, Taylor found memoirs of a local Monticello girl, Mollie Greist, describing her time in Alaska as a medical missionary from 1920-1937. Later a manuscript from Mollie’s husband, Doctor Henry W. Greist, was discovered at Dartmouth College. Lastly, Mollie and Doctor’s son David contributed his recollections and Taylor edited the complete tome, Under the North Star. This remarkable true story is told from three points of view: Mollie’s maternal, practical and subjective focus on her present life and people she encountered; the Doctor’s intellectual, philosophical, and objective approach to the history and future of the Eskimo people God called him to serve; and David’s experience growing from a 2 year old to 16 year old in the wilds of Point Barrow, Alaska, the furthest point north and 350 miles above the treeline, with Eskimos as playmates.
