While the landmark Dayton Peace Accords famously ended the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1995, our region’s efforts for peace go much further back in history. Author Tammy Newsom explores the inventiveness, compassion and courage of the men and women who have made Dayton a city of peace in her book, A History of Peace in Dayton Ohio. She visits the New Lebanon Branch of the Dayton Metro Library on Tuesday, May 10, at 6:30 p.m. to read an excerpt from her book and answer questions.
Newsom is a Dayton native and freelance author of numerous news articles for the Dayton City Paper, Dayton Daily News and Impact Weekly. Her book explores Dayton’s Abolitionists, Quakers and other individuals and organizations that have worked toward peace and nonviolence.
The program is free and open to the public at the Library, located at 715 W. Main Street in New Lebanon. For more information call (937) 463-BOOK.
