Author to speak on Oct. 1

The Mennonite Heritage & Agricultural Museum has invited author Carolyn Zeisset to speak at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Alexanderwohl Mennonite Church.

Zeisset’s recently published historical novel, Then the Rules Changed, tells the 1870s Russian Mennonite migration story from the perspective of a child. The main character is loosely based on Zeisset grandfather, who was a child when his Mennonite family settled in Marion County, Kansas.

Her presentation will include background details of the emigration and make connections between historical context and current events in Ukraine.
A refreshment time will follow with the opportunity to purchase and have Zeisset sign your copy of her book.

Alexanderwohl Mennonite Church is located 1 mile north of Goessel on Highway K-15. Contact the museum for more information: 620-367-2358 or
