Susan Young, from the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History, will be welcomed by the Buffalo River Partners at its next program, "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle”

Tuesday, May 22, 5:30 p.m. at Boone County Library in Harrison.

"The Hand that Rocks the Cradle” is a slide program featuring images of mothers and motherhood from the Shiloh Museum's photo collection. These photos always evoke memories of motherhood and of people's own mothers, and the program lends itself to audience interaction and sharing.

Susan Young is the outreach coordinator at the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History in Springdale, a position she has held since 1994. Susan is a lifelong resident of Fayetteville and a fifth-generation Ozarker.

She is the author of "So Big, This Little Place," a history of the founding of Tontitown, Arkansas, and the editor of Memories I Can't Let Go Of, a collection of life stories from Tontitown, Arkansas.

Susan serves on the boards of the Arkansas Historical Association and the Ozark Folk Cultural Center Commission. Her Ozark history interests include traditional folkways, religion, and cemeteries.

In her spare time, Susan enjoys reading, traveling, gardening, genealogy, and birdwatching.
