Michigan Author Pens Mennonite Memoir


Michigan author Rhoda Janzen will be promoting her new memoir Mennonite in a Little Black Dress as part of the Girls’ Night Out author series at Schuler of Lansing, at 7 p.m. Thursday, October 29. The book comes out on October 13 — check out our review for a little pre-pub buzz!

“I read this book on my vacation, and was enthralled to learn about a faith with which I was completely unfamiliar. Throughout this memoir, Janzen shares her momentous trials and tribulations of growing up, falling in love, and running to and from her Mennonite faith.

Janzen’s wit kept me up at night wanting more stories of her trulyendearing family.  For me, this book is a reminder that no matter which paths you blaze in your life you will always have a home base to which to return – physically or metaphorically.  Expertly written, Mennonite in a Little Black Dress is a delight to read – and thank goodness it wasn’t a cookbook.”
