Southwest Baptist University News Release
Contact: Office of Marketing and Communications

BOLIVAR, Mo. – SBU University Libraries are hosting the annual Meet the Author Series event on November 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Harriett K. Hutchens Library. The Hutchens Library is located in the Jester Learning and Performance Center at the Bolivar campus of SBU.

Shari Y.S. Hadley, MSW, LCSW will share her book “From the Cauldron to the Cross: My Journey from Wiccan to Christian.” An alumna of SBU, Shari converted to Christianity after her husband died in a tragic car accident. Her story is not one of instantaneous healing, but rather a journey with Christ, which in the end broke the powers of darkness that bound her.

The evening will begin with refreshments and music by the Clarinet Quartet, followed by an author presentation and book signing. This event is open to the University and Bolivar communities. Admission and parking are free.
