    Meet author Jeanette Stump as she introduces her book "The Red Caboose, an Orphan's Journey".
    Jeanette was orphaned at the age of three. She and her family moved from Pennsylvania to Moosehart, an orphanage in Illinois. The Red Caboose is a memoir of the ten years she lived at the orphanage and the ten years it took her to acclimate to life outside an institution. 
    Meet Jeanette and ask her questions about the book. Books will be available for purchase during the event.
