Monroeville

Would you like to create awesome scrapbook pages but you don’t have the cash or the ideas to get started? Come to the Budget Scrapbooking class at the Monroeville Branch on the third Thursday of each month at 4:00 p.m. to learn a new technique for your scrapbook. Bring an acid free glue-stick and a good pair of scissors and they will provide the rest. Starting with a sheet of brown, white or tan paper you will create your own page based on a chosen theme. There are pre-cut shapes and letters and a sample page. Let your imagination take it from there! If you know the theme in advance you can bring pictures and finish the page in one sitting or you can find the pictures after you make the page. Either way, you are sure to have a great time and learn something new. Call ahead for the month’s theme at 260-421-1340.

Teege chronicled her family history journey in the internationally bestselling book, My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me: A Black Woman Discovers Her Family’s Nazi Past.

Please join us as Jennifer shares the engaging story of how she learned her family’s dark secret.
