Barbara Short gave a witty, interesting talk on her book about her father. Her presentation was wonderful to listen too and the research she has done, to present her book leaves me in awe. Reading journal entries, Barbara pulled out information as to what happened personally, locally, church, town, country and world wide, thus placing the story in the context of the times. It was a shame that we had to limit her time to only one hour as we all could have listened to more. Perhaps we need an encore?
