We're pleased to welcome our neighbor and friend, Hadiyah Joan Carlyle, who will join us this time as the author of a new memoir, Torch in the Dark: One Woman's Journey (Book Publisher's Network). A single mother, she overcame considerable adversity to become one of the first women since World War II to enter the trades as a union welder. Her son Reuven grew up to represent the 36th District in the Washington State Legislature. "Torch in the Dark is lyrical, poignant and riveting. Any library of American lives should include this one." – Priscilla Long.
