New Castle Public Library to Host Book Talk on "Blessings from Agnes" by Sue Linville

New Castle, PA - The New Castle Public Library is excited to host a book talk on "Blessings from Agnes," by local author Sue Linville. Join us on June 5, 2023, at 9:30 am in the Copernicus Room of the library to hear Sue Linville discuss the story of a spiritual journey of Karen Heasley, influenced by her grandmother.

"Blessings from Agnes" is a heartwarming and uplifting memoir that celebrates the power of family, faith, and community. Through her touching and heartfelt storytelling, Linville shares the story of Karen Heasley, the founder of the Spiritual Path Church in New Castle.

"I'm excited to share Karen’s story and her work in our community. Spiritual Path Church represents a long-standing faith in Spiritualism in our community dating to the 19th century," said Linville. "Through 'Blessings from Agnes,' I hope to inspire others to cherish their relationships that matter most and to find hope and meaning in their own lives."

The book talk is free and open to all community members. Copies of "Blessings from Agnes" will be available for purchase, and Sue Linville will be available for book signings after the talk.

"We're thrilled to host this event and to support local authors like Sue Linville," said Andew Henley, Director of the New Castle Public Library. "We believe that books have the power to inspire and transform us, and we're excited to share this inspiring memoir with our community."

Led by former Slippery Rock University professor Dr. Alison McNeal, the library's book group program offers a range of fiction and non-fiction titles selected by popular vote.
