Two Authors Under One Roof: Meet Susan Eaton Mendenhall & Don Mendenhall

Thursday, April 29 at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom

Join us for a glimpse into the writing lives of two local artists. Susan, a watercolor artist, recently published A House Named Simplicity: Stories of Finding Home. Her husband, Don, is a fine art photographer and author of Civility: Belonging with Dignity.

In her book, Susan has written a collection of stories about a house that supported their quest to find home, both in a place and within themselves. Don’s book explores the practical expression of civility through a series of personal stories that serve as outstanding real-life models for civil behavior in the face of conflict. He encourages us to take a closer look at our lives and offers useful ideas about how to live more respectful and trusting lives.
