Library News

Wednesday, October 11 at 6 p.m. Shirley Muñoz Newson, author of “The Little Dark One: a True Story of Switched at Birth” will be at the library. After years of feeling like she never belonged, Shirley’s life was flipped upside down the day before her 43rd birthday – the Wyoming woman received DNA test results that would change her life forever. This test answered questions Shirley had wondered about since she was young and Shirley would eventually discover she was switched at birth in a Gillette, Wyoming hospital, a story so bizarre and rare in the United States. Shirley will have copies of her book available to purchase.
