Historic Rugby: Author of The Shack coming to Rugby April 3-5, 2020

Rugby, Tennessee: Wm. Paul Young, author of the best-selling novel The Shack, will be in Rugby on
April 3-5 for conversation about his ideas of love, forgiveness, and transformational healing and the inspiration behind his books.

Young was born in Canada and raised by missionary parents in New Guinea. As an adult, he used his writing talent to create unique gifts for friends. After being turned down by numerous publishers, The Shack would go on to become the top selling work of fiction in 2008.
