WOODSTOCK – Bill Tammeus, a former columnist for the Kansas City Star, will be the special guest of the 9 a.m. adult class on Sunday at First Presbyterian Church of Woodstock, 2018 N. Route 47.
Tammeus will speak about his book, “They Were Just People: Stories of Rescue in Poland During the Holocaust.”
All are welcome to this free presentation.
Tammeus came to the Star in 1970 as a reporter, spent nearly 27 years on the paper’s editorial page and then moved his column in March 2004 to the weekly Faith section. He took formal retirement in mid-2006 but continued as Faith section columnist on a freelance basis until late 2008.
Since 2004, he has written his daily “Faith Matters” blog, which the Kansas City Star features on its website. He also writes a monthly column for The Presbyterian Outlook and a biweekly column for The National Catholic Reporter.
A graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, Tammeus was a member of the Star staff that won the 1982 Pulitzer Prize for local reporting.
