|Grace Livingston Hill-Lutz|
Tomorrow is Cairn Universities Homecoming celebration. There will be games and festivities, inflatables and conferences. Plus the Weather Channel predicts the morning should be lovely if a bit chill, so be sure to layer and bring a coffee mug!
We love Homecoming as it is a wonderful time to see familiar faces that we may not see on a regular basis outside of social media. This year the Masland Library- yes it is officially the Masland Library and no longer known as the Learning Resource Center- will be having a rather large booksale. Located on the first floor around the staircase this sale features commentaries, encyclopedia sets, Christian living, and so Christian fiction.
More importantly the Library is also hosting Mr. Robert Munce, the grandson of Grace Livingston Hill-Lutz, who will be giving a talk about Mrs. Hill-Lutz. Many students around the library have noticed our signs about this talk and have remarked that they have seen their grandmothers and mothers reading Mrs. Hill-Lutz’s materials. Ms. Grace had a knack for writing stories, and she loved to tell stories that had their basis in hard fact. Her tales of the Old West were based on correspondence and her tales set in Pennsylvania were based on her own experiences. Due to this history as well as the gospel in her stories, she has remained in print from the time she was originally published until today.
Please join us at 11:00 am or at 2:00 pm to hear Mr. Munce speak about the life of his beloved grandmother. The Grace Livingston Hill Collection will be available in the Masland Library until May 2013. We have also begun a Research Guide on her to discuss her books; it can be found here http://libguides.cairn.edu/glh.
Grace Livingston Hill talk- at 11:00 am & 2:00 pm.
