Olive Wilmot - Had they but known her - An Interactive Discussion

  • St Georges Church Newcastle 250 Mill Street South Newcastle, ON, L1B 1C5 Canada (map)

Join us for an interactive discussion with author Judy Clapperton and Dr. James Breech. Judy will speak about her book Had they but known her. This historical fiction reconstructs the life of Olive Wilmot from historical records, family anecdotes and gossip and tells us there is much more to each of us than the rumors people tell. Dr. James Breech, a New Testament scholar, will discuss the connection that the Wilmot Family, especially Olive, have to the Louis C. Tiffany stained glass window in St. Georges Church in which Olive was portrayed as Mary Magdalene and the misunderstandings that surround this portrayal.

Had They But Known Her is available through Amazon for those who would like to read it before the talk. For those who prefer to wait until September 29, Judy will have copies available for purchase and signing at that time.
