Catherine Campbell, author of "The Summer of the Lost Limb" (under the pen name Janis Good), will share the story of Mary Rohrer, a five year old Mennonite child who lost her leg in a farming accident near Dayton, VA in 1908. Learn about Mary's triumph over her circumstances and the people who assisted her, including James Hanger, the founder of the company who made Mary's artificial leg. Artifacts from Mary's life will be on display, thanks to the generous loan by Fort Harrison, in Dayton.
