So Many Fragile Things by Amy Kinzer Steidinger

Monday, March 14, 6:30 p.m.

Amy Kinzer Steidinger is a genealogist and historian who loves stories. She’s been an educator in public and private school programs for twenty-five years. You are invited to join us as she discusses her book, So Many Fragile Things.

Amy came across a story of a mother and her three young children who had all died on the same day – March 13, 1900. Was it an accident? An illness of some kind? She soon learned that the husband and father of this young family had murdered them after being excommunicated from the Amish church. This historical true crime book follows the trial and provides some answers.
