The Pocono Record interviewed Barbara J. Taylor about the haunting Fourth of July tragedy that inspired her debut novel SING IN THE MORNING, CRY AT NIGHT. Taylor, a 27-year Pocono Mountain English teacher, discussed how she incorporated the “Billy Sunday Snowstorm” into her story and how she intends on writing two sequels.
Taylor will be reading and signing books at the Lackawanna Historical Society in Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Wed., July 16 at 7 p.m. In the advertisement for the event, the historical society highlighted Billy Sunday, the evangelist who came to town and preached during one of Scranton’s worst blizzards. Above is a picture of the interior of the tabernacle built for the revival on the land where Prep now stands.
