Thrift Store Saints is a collection of true stories based on Jane's experiences serving the poor at a St. Vincent de Paul thrift store in the inner city of Kalamazoo. Knuth is a reluctant new volunteer at the store, sharing that her middle-class, suburban, church-going background has not prepared her well for this kind of work. By the end of the book, Knuth has undergone a transformation of sorts, and neither she nor we can ever view the poor in the same way again. Jane will also discuss the publishing process of her books. Refreshments served.
