May 17 — Pamela Joy Anderson, Local Author
Library, 1:30 PM. Pamela Joy Anderson discovered that home is where the U.S. Government sends you as she traveled the world with her husband, who was a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Agency for International Development. They lived in the Islamic world in Pakistan, Egypt, Bangladesh, and Indonesia, and the stories in her book, You Are the Needle and I Am the Thread, tell about their adventures raising children overseas, trailing tigers in the mangrove swamps of Bangladesh, exploring ancient markets in Cairo, and stumbling over cultural pitfalls, as well as others. Many of the vignettes were previously published in The Foreign Service Journal. The stories reflect their adaptation to life overseas as well as back home in this faith journey and memoir.
