OXFORD – Pauline K. Manville will talk about her recent book, Windows of the Word of God on Wednesday, January 27 at 7 p.m. in the Oxford Town Hall Meeting Room.  This event is co-sponsored  by the Friends of the Library in Oxford and the Oxford Historical Society. 
 
While featuring the windows of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Oxford, Windows on the Word of God explains the history and symbolism that is shared by stained glass church windows throughout the world.  Mrs. Manville, a retired Oxford school teacher, includes information on the meaning of the various flowers and colors used in the windows, as well as the histories of the local families who contributed them.
 
All those interested in art history, genealogy and local history will enjoy this free program.
