5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Author Jeannette Q. Byers will present a talk on her book, “Brothers in Spirit,” Saturday, June 10, at 5:30 p.m. at the Norfolk Library. The book concerns the relationship of humanitarian Albert Schweitzer and William Larimer Mellon, Jr., scion of the Pittsburgh oil and banking family. Schweitzer’s work inspired Mellon to abandon his life as a successful rancher, to earn a medical degree in mid-life and later establish a well-equipped hospital in one of the poorest regions of Haiti, where, with his wife, he spent the rest of his life working as a physician and a community development engineer.
