All are welcome to attend this free book Launch and Signing.

Bruce Guenther, ACTS Seminaries Faculty, has written a biography that features the life of his grandfather, who was a dairy farmer, community leader and bishop of the Old Colony Mennonite Church in Saskatchewan during the 1960s.

As part of a Mennonite community intensely resistant to change and cultural integration, his selection as bishop was unusual given his experience as a school board trustee and municipal counselor.

The book, entitled The Ältester: Herman D.W. Friesen, A Mennonite Leader in Changing Times, was released by the University of Regina Press at the end of 2018.

Light refreshments will be served. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
