Evidence is Lacking. Yet I Still Hope by Joan Enders - Book Blitz + Giveaway

By 1:00 AM , , , , , , , , , , ,









Joan Enders lives in Washington State with her
husband Jerry, and loves the Pacific Northwest! For 28 years she taught
literature and research skills in school libraries to middle and high school
students, and advocated for full-time school librarians in every school. She
was a recipient of the American Library Association's Frances Henne Award for
library leadership. 

She loved her jobs, often to distraction. Once Joan stayed
so late at the school library that the custodians waxed the floors, unaware
that she was still upstairs. She crept out the least sticky exit. Joan now
teaches librarians on webinars. When not teaching she administers the local
Family History Center for FamilySearch International. She enjoys peeling back
the research onion for students and adults. That was the motivation for her
first book, which replicates her most popular inquiry lesson for U.S. History
students and teachers. Joan speaks in her community, for professional
organizations and at genealogy conferences.

Joshua Henry Bates, a young teacher of a country school, wonders if there will be more to his life. Yes, there are summers away from the farm, attending the University of Utah, dancing at Saltair, watching pictures shows, and eating ice cream on bone dry days. In his journal he questions his future. He finds a young woman to love, but she is an ever-mutating mystery. His job seems to be a dead-end. His parents need his help more all the time. Josh tries to change his life: cooling the relationship with his girlfriend, teaching in a new school, and registering for service in the American Expeditionary Forces. Still, Joshua is filled with self-doubt. Will Josh marry the girl? Will he find a dazzling life mission? Will he be victorious in war? Each chapter contains one to thirty primary sources from the life of this young man drafted as a doughboy in the Meuse-Argonne Campaign.
 Praise for the book:
If you have ever searched for your own history, or
a way to bring

history to life, this book is a masterpiece.”
