In the 1950s, twenty-two-year-old Jenny Lee leaves her comfortable home to move into a convent and become a midwife in London's East End slums. While delivering babies all over the city, Jenny encounters a colorful cast of women—from the plucky, warm-hearted nuns with whom she lives, to the woman with twenty-four children who can't speak English, to the prostitutes of the city's seedier side.
Join Allison Petrus-Wilkins for a discussion of Jennifer Worth's best-selling memoir.
"Be Red Cross Ready" is a Red Cross preparedness presentation that teaches communities how to Get a Kit, Make a Plan, and Stay Informed before and during a disaster such as a snow storm, flood, fire, and other hazards, strikes our region. The presentation is about half an hour long, and it covers topics such as sheltering in place, evacuation, emergency kit preparation, setting up a meeting place, and many more.
