Miriam Auker, co-author of John Hostetler’s memoir, Looking Back, will hold an author talk and book-signing at Fairmount on Friday, October 15, at 2:00 p.m. The event will be held in the Farm Crest Community Room Chapel at 1100 Farm Crest Drive on the east side of the Fairmount campus.

Hostetler, who passed away in June 2020, had a 50-year career at Mennonite Central Committee, most importantly as Director of Material Aid. In his younger years, he lived for a time in Germany where he met and married his wife Kathy. After his retirement, he spent another 20 years as a volunteer for MCC. He was a servant leader who accomplished a great deal without drawing attention to himself.

Auker will be on hand to sign books that will be available for purchase. The public is cordially invited, and while there is no charge to attend, space is limited, so please call 717.354.1893 to reserve a seat.
