Ruth Jacobson, author of "You Never Try, You Never Know: Six Years in Liberia," will speak and sign books. Jacobson, a nurse, and her husband Harold, a maintenance mechanic, served in the Peace Corps for three years beginning in 1971, then three more years as mission hospital staff. The book is a collection of the letters Mrs. Jacobson wrote each week to her mother. The Jacobsons still keep up with their Liberian, Peace Corps and mission friends. Mrs. Jacobson is also a past president of the Yelm Timberland Library's Friends group.
