SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va.-As part of its free conference series, the Scarborough Society of Shepherd University will sponsor a program with author and former student Stephen K. Logston on Thursday, April 12 at 7 p.m. in the reading room of the Scarborough library. The program is free and open to the public. After the conference there will be a dessert reception.
Logston will talk about her first book, "Even Her Tears Were Yellow," which chronicles the short but inspiring life of her stepdaughter, Chelsea Lingenfelter, as she fought against hepatocellular carcinoma. Chelsea died in 2013 during a liver transplant surgery.
Written to promote a better awareness of organ donation, Logston's memoir describes Chelsea's struggles and perseverance throughout her illness, as well as the special bond she shared with her mother and stepfather.
Logston, a retired public educator, spent 35 years teaching in Wellsville, Ohio. He wrote "Even Her Tears Were Yellow" after his retirement and will release his first novel this year.
Originally from Chester, Logston graduated from Shepherd in 1975. He and his wife, Joni, now live in Highlandtown, Ohio, where they continue to promote awareness of organ donation.
The Scarborough Society is friends with the library organization sponsored by the Shepherd University Foundation. Annual membership dues help support library acquisitions, technology and programs. Membership is open to all interested supporters of the Scarborough Library.
