July 8, 2022, Tecumseh, Michigan – Sister Mary Louise Putrow, OP, author, and Associate Arlene Bachanov, Editorial Assistant, will offer a presentation on Seeds of Change, the latest history book of the Adrian Dominican Sisters. The presentation – held on Zoom from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, July 19, 2022 – is sponsored by the Tecumseh District Library.
