Warren St. John visits Hesston

by Stasia Delgado – News Editor

Students attending Warren St. John’s presentation heard the author speak on pursuing the story, interviewing reluctant subjects, and more on the complicated issues faced by residents of Clarkston, Georgia, the setting of “Outcasts United.”

Thursday September 19th Hesston College students, faculty, staff and community members had the pleasure of welcoming author Warren St. John, the author of Hesston’s common read, “Outcasts United,” to campus. The night started off with words from President Howard Kiem, speeches from First Year Experience Scholars and a performance by Bel Canto. Finally Warren St. John took the stage to give his awaited presentation. In his presentation he spoke of what first pushed him to write the book, the struggles he faced while researching and other stories not included in the book.

Student Tasha Drake said, “I really enjoyed his presentation. It was nice to hear of what motivated him to write the book.”

Following Mr. St. John’s presentation, those in attendance had the opportunity to have their copy of Outcasts United signed by the author himself and participate in a reception.
