Author Bennett Appears at Library

null Mary Frances Chupik Bennett, author of the novel Invitation to Cat Spring: From European Tyranny to Freedom to Civil War, spoke at the library on April 10, 2008. Bennett's appearance was sponsored by the Shropshire-Upton Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Her novel tells the story of a Czech family’s emigration to America in 1855 and their subsequent involvement in the Civil War. Much of the action takes place in Fayette, Colorado, and Austin Counties. She appeared in costume and related highlights of the story. Her presentation drew forty-two people.
