Brenda Nixon, an Ohio resident and author/contributor with 35 books, will be speaking about the Amish culture on Saturday, June 27, at 11 a.m., in Rodman Main Auditorium. With an insider’s look at the Amish way of life, Nixon brings our Amish friends and neighbors to life. Her daughter is married to an ex-Amish man, the son of a bishop, and Nixon’s home has become a safe house of sorts for those who have chosen to live in the English world–earning her the nickname “mom to the ex-Amish”.
