Third Thursday Author Visit featuring Joyce Cherry Cresswell
08/16/2017

The Stayton Public Library is excited to announce a visit featuring author Joyce Cherry Cresswell on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 7:00 pm in the E. G. Siegmund Meeting Room. There will be a reception accompanying the event.

Joyce Cherry Cresswell is an armchair historian whose interest in the Civil War began as a teenager with Gone with the Wind. Since then, her perceptions of that epic struggle have been refined and informed by the great American writers, both North and South, who have courageously explored the enigma that is America. Through this novel, based on letters, diaries and newspaper accounts of the day, she adds her great-grandmother’s story to the mix. Her first novel, A Great Length of Time, won the 2017 Oregon Literary Arts Ken Kesey Award for Fiction.

The Stayton Public Library’s speaking events for 2017 are made possible, in part, by funding from the Marion County Cultural Corporation and the Stayton Friends of the Library.
