WAUSEON—Local author Keri Aeschliman will host a book talk and signing at the Wauseon Public Library on Thursday, March 26 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. in the library’s Reading Room. She will share excerpts from her first book, “In Paths of Righteousness.” It is the first in the series.
The Book Talk & Signing are free, and the public is encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided throughout the event. Aeschliman will have books available for purchase that day or you can log onto amazon.com and purchase one for $14.99.
Aeschliman is nineteen years old and just graduated from her homeschool program. She lives on a farm with her family raising cattle and growing corn, soybeans and wheat. She enjoys singing, playing the piano, harp and mountain dulcimer, as well as crocheting, quilting, gardening, and baking.
One of her biggest passions is ministering to the persecuted church. “I have had the privilege of serving with The Voice of the Martyrs, which has been an incredible blessing and encouragement to me. But if there is one thing that you should know about me, it is that I am a child of God and I am grateful beyond measure for what Christ has done for me,” shared Aeschliman.
Her faith is a big part of her novel. According to the book’s jacket, “’In Paths of Righteousness’ is set in a small Minnesota farming community in the late 1800’s. The main character, David Riley, is an enthusiastic, hardworking young man of 16 with an appetite for adventure…and for truth. Being raised in a family where religion was nothing more than a deeply rooted tradition–but one that none dared to challenge–David finds himself struggling in vain to ever be good enough to please God. And his constant battles with the bully at school bring out the worst in him. Meanwhile there is a mysterious wives’ tale in Detweiler about a crazy old man, a black wolf, and an albino red-tailed hawk. The thrill of the unknown sends David on an adventure to try to figure out the real story. But what he discovers will change his life in more ways than he ever could have imagined.”
