Finding Father is a collection of stories about Mennonite fathers by their daughters. Written by well-known and first-time writers, these stories illuminate the often close and sometimes troubling relationships that exist between one of humanity’s most precious bonds. From battles over relationships and sexuality, to debates over chores and church, these stories also hold the shared intimacies of driving side by side with dad, laughing, and headed down the road.
Enjoy listening to stories read aloud by the authors at this book launch evening hosted by the Institute for Anabaptist Mennonite Studies (IAMS), at Conrad Grebel University College.
