Rusk County woman to share Mennonite traditions, complexities

By UW-Barron County

Life as a Mennonite in rural, northwestern Wisconsin will be discussed February 22 during a presentation at UW-Barron County led by Lucinda J. Miller. Her talk, “The Story of a Mennonite,” will reflect on distinctive Mennonite traditions, her own Mennonite life and the stories and complexities that make it real. Her talk will be from noon to 1 p.m. in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (Ritzinger 234). It is part of the university’s Thursdays @ the U Performance and Lecture Series.

Miller is a writer, teacher, blogger, and member of a conservative Mennonite community in Rusk County. She is the author of two books: a memoir, “Anything But Simple: My Life as a Mennonite,” and “The Arrowhead,” a children’s book. Both volumes explore her family's deep rural and Mennonite roots. More information can be found at:

The Thursdays @ the U series is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the UW-Barron County Foundation. UW-BC is located at 1800 College Dr., Rice Lake. For more information, call 715-234-8176.
