Mary Ellen Donat was 15-years-old and preparing to attend the Indiana University Writers' Conference when she began to formulate a backstory for a fascinatingly shocking headline in the local newspaper. "In the Shadow of Her Hat" is a work of fiction based on actual family, local, national and international events.

Years later, while doing research for this novel, she wrote a local history column and became a features reporter for a Gannett newspaper. Concurrently, she received an honors degree in English from Indiana University East and was also a member of several boards of directors including Ivy Tech State College business curriculum, Richmond Power & Light, and Richmond city council. As a member of Richmond Common Council, Mary Ellen wrote the first clean indoor air legislation in the nation, as reported by USA Today.

Mary Ellen has written for several magazines while leading a successful advertising company for nearly two decades. She is currently writing another historical fiction novel and finishing an inspirational narrative about an infant abandoned in a woods.

Location: The Conference Room in the Lower Level

Time: 6:00pm
Title: Lady Catherine, the Earl and the Real Downton Abbey
Author: The Countess of Carnarvon
Registration Begins: June 15th

Catherine, a beautiful and spirited American woman who married the man who would become the 6th Earl of Carnarvon, presides over the grand estate during a tumultuous time for the British aristocracy. Following the First World War, many of the great houses of England faded as their owners fortunes declined in the new political and social world of the 1920s and 1930s.

Book Discussion: August 17th
Location: The Conference Room in the Lower Level

Time: 11:00am
Title: Digging to America
Author: Anne Tyler
Registration Begins: July 20th

Two families, who would otherwise never have come together, meet by chance at the Baltimore airport – the Donaldsons, a very American couple, and the Yazdans. Each couple is awaiting the arrival of an adopted infant daughter from Korea. Bitsy Donaldson impulsively invites the Yazdans to celebrate: an “arrival party” that from then on is repeated every year as the two families become more and more deeply intertwined. A luminous novel brimming with subtle, funny, and tender observations that immerse us in the challenges of both sides of the American story.
