Meet the Author: Mary Sharratt
Patrons will learn about 12th century history and culture and be inspired to read the book authored by a Minnesota native.
Patrons "traveled" back to the 12th century to discover the dramatic story of Hildegard von Bingen—a nun who left her mark on the world against all odds. Local author read from her new novel, Illuminations, based on Hildegard's life, and discussed Hildegard's relevance for us today. Author appeared in 12th century costume and played brief recordings of Hildegard's ethereal music.
