On Monday, October 2 “The Little Dark One: the True Story of Switched at Birth” by Shirley Muñoz Newson will be discussed at 6 p.m. Imagine feeling like you never belonged or you didn’t know who you really were. That’s exactly what happened to Shirley Muñoz Newson. Her life was flipped upside down the day before her 43rd birthday on April 7, 2001. The Gillette, Wyoming, woman received the DNA test results that would change her life forever. Everything she thought she knew about herself wasn’t true. Shirley will also present a program at the library on Wednesday, October 11 at 6 p.m.
