Dung beetles, yeah.

McLaughlin Janice CroppedIt’s a new book by Sister Janice McLaughlin, president of the Ossining-based Maryknoll Sisters, who did missions work in Zimbabwe in Central Africa for the past 30 years.

It’s been described to me as “a lovely little book of meditations on African animals from the wild, their characteristics and what they have to say to us.”

McLaughlin explains: “From Kilimanjaro to Cape Town, I have been privileged to interact with the people who live in harmony with nature and with the abundance of wildlife that make the continent such a Garden of Eden.”

She will be available to sign copies of the book at the Maryknoll Sisters’ annual International Bazaar on Saturday (Oct. 24) at the Maryknoll Sisters Center, 10 Pinesbridge Road, in Ossining.

Booths will display items from Africa, the Americas, East and South Asia and the Pacific Islands, areas where the Maryknoll Sisters work in mission. The purpose of the bazaar is to raise funds to support the sisters and their work.

Directions are HERE. The bazaar is from 10 to 4 and Sister McLaughlin will be there all day.
