We had Evelyn Sangster Benson in for a Book signing on Dec. 15th

and we had a great time listening to her  “Everyday happeings to

Everyday People Through Four Generations.  Oral History At Its Best!

Evelyn Sangster Benson is uniquely qualified to author this book of

stories about ordinary people and everyday events.  Her middle class

family has lived in the same twon for five generations and been active

in community sports, church, politics and the arts.  A retired high

school teacher, she related stories she had collected over half a

century to her fascinated students who urged her to write them

down.  Many of the stories were passed down to her in family lore or

recorded by interview.  The author lived many of the events herself

and her folksy way of telling her stories immediately engages the reader of any generation.  Young

people will learn something new and older generations will enjoy a flood of memories.”
