Cranberry Genealogy Club Welcomes Mary Frailey Calland

Wednesday,
October 28 @ 
6PM
 
On September 17, 1862, an explosion at the Allegheny Arsenal in Pittsburgh, PA kills seventy-eight girls rolling bullet cartridges for the Union army. News of the catastrophe is buried, however, beneath the horrendous casuality reports from the Battle of Antietam, fought on the very same day. Calland's novel, "Consecrated Dust," bridges the gap between the fact and fiction of the Arsenal explosion. 
Join us in the Library's Franklin Station Room for an evening with local author. Mary Frailey Calland.
