Please come and celebrate the launch of Courage Says “Keep On”! Faith will read a little, answer questions, and with gratitude and pride, sign copies of her first book. A DWPC member since 2010, Faith has worked in marketing, communications and public relations since 1976.
Courage Says ‘”Keep On” illuminates a fascinating period of American history through the eyes of Faith’s grandmother, Rachel Whitcomb, who worked at three different New England settlement houses from 1913 to 1922. During her career, Rachel kept extensive written records through journals, poems and newspaper articles. Faith spent about 12 years off and on, researching and writing Rachel’s personal story, while weaving that into the backdrop of the Progressive Era, immigration issues of the day, settlement houses and the early days of social work. The book concludes with profiles of two of Rachel’s settlements that are still in the business of helping people, more than a century after the settlement idea came into being.
