COSHOCTON -- On Thursday, May 2 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Coshocton Public Library will present an "Evening with Author JoAnn Hague."

Hague is an Ohioan by default and, eventually, by desire. She began her professional life as a high school and college English teacher.

Soon, however, the writing compulsion assaulted her. Encouraged by a faithful spouse and a circle of dedicated writing friends, she plunged full-time into writing. Her book, "Dancing through Fire," recounts the massacre of the Moravian Christian Indians at Gnadenhutten. Hague strove to tell their story in the way they would have recounted it themselves, passing along its memory, helping to shape meaning out of a shapeless, heartbreaking event.

"Dancing through Fire" is a recipient of the Ohio Arts Council Fellowship Grant for Creative Writing.

Registration is requested to attend this program.

Call the library at 740-622-0956 to sign-up.
