Thursday on Amish Wisdom | Memoirist Shirley Showalter, Blush: A Mennonite Girl Meets a Glittering World
Join me in welcoming Shirley Showalter to Amish Wisdom this week. Born into a plain-dressing, plain-speaking Mennonite farm family in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, Shirley Showalter was named for Shirley Temple, a movie star she was forbidden to watch. She grew up a sheltered farm girl who went on to become a college president. Her new memoir Blush: A Mennonite Girl Meets a Glittering World tells her story and contains some Mennonite recipes and fascinating vintage photos.
