Shannon Sullivan Hudson

Shannon Sullivan Hudson has been a middle school teacher for 30 years – 28 in Crawfordsville. She loves history, quilting, reading, crocheting, knitting, walking, cross stitching, and spoiling her dogs. She writes, “My maternal first cousins traced our family history discovering we descended from a very long line of Quakers who settled on the eastern side of Indiana, right in the middle of Levi Coffin’s operation near Richmond. My research opportunities presented themselves in two Lilly Teacher Creativity Grants in 2003 and 2016. I began to study a broad set of information relating to the Underground Railroad, to expand on existing information, and to complete my journey by telling Montgomery County’s piece of the Underground Railroad puzzle. This book is the culminating document of my findings from that very long journey.”

Titles she will have for sale include:

  • Abolitionists on the Underground Railroad: Legends from Montgomery County, Indiana
