Remembering a Man of Conscience

Norman Morrison was a devout Quaker and a critic of the Vietnam War.  In November 1965 he immolated himself on the steps of the Pentagon. Morrison’s widow, Anne Morrison Welsh has now written a memoir, Held in the Light, that recounts Norman's story as well as her own journey, over a lifetime, to find acceptance, forgiveness, and recovery from life¹s wounds. Mrs. Welsh will discuss Held in the Light at 5pm on Wednesday, 19 November, in the Biddle Rare Book Room at Perkins Library.
