2023 Programs

​​​THIS THURSDAY! September 28, 2023 - "Stephanie Ellison, author of "Always and Forever" and popular speaker, will share her story with us. Writers should always have stories to tell!  Her life is an extraordinary testament to the transformative power of resilience and healing.  With her unique blend of personal experiences academic knowledge, and natural charisma, she is a beacon of hope for those facing adversity and a much sought-after speaker. Join us for her program: Always Forever Dreaming Big!

October 26, 2023 - Alice Specht, retired HSU dean of libraries, volunteers at the Grace Museum and is a member of the Taylor County Historical Commission.  She has published historical articles about pioneers in Taylor County's Mulberry Canyon.  She will share with us about an Abilene woman you may never have heard about: Edna Gertrude Beasley.  It's quite a story; come enjoy it while perhaps learning how to do historical research for your own writing!
