The Cookie War: A Sweet and True Tale from the Mennonite Archives of Ontario

Tuesday, February 9, 2021 8:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST (GMT -05:00)


Three cookies baked by local Old Order Mennonite women in 1984 lie in a box at the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. How they came to be here involves a patent dispute, a famous cookbook author, and a series of events that inspired a stage production and screenplay. Perhaps this lighthearted tale holds some lessons for us today? Join Archivist Laureen Harder-Gissing to find out.
