Habitat for Humanity of Springfield, MO (HFHS) will host a book signing and reading of “The Everywhere House” by Sherry Lincoln on Friday, September 25, 2015 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore located at 2410 S. Scenic, Springfield 65807.
“The Everywhere House” is part memoir and part historic account of how Sherry Lincoln’s childhood home near the Brentwood Library suddenly went missing in 2013. After inquiring with the library, Ms. Lincoln found out the home was part of a deconstruction effort to provide land for the expansion of the nearby library.
The deconstruction program allows ReStore staff and volunteers to salvage good-quality, reusable building materials from homes and businesses that are being demolished or remodeled. The ReStore will then sell the salvaged items to help fund the Habitat for Humanity mission.
“Our deconstruction program is a vital component to our ReStore,” said Larry Peterson, executive director for HFHS. “We are pleased that Ms. Lincoln found solace through writing this memoir and the knowledge that parts of her home are now recycled into the homes of our surrounding community.”
