Author Frances Worthington will discuss her book Abraham: One God, Three Wives, Five Religions, 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2 at a free public program at the library in Cody. Her book examines the life of Abraham, a historical religious figure and his wives/concubines Sarah, Hagar, and Keturah. Christianity, Judaism, Islam, the Bábí Faith, and the Bahá’í Faith religions were all influenced by Abraham and his family. “By tracing the events from century to century, we connect, spiritually as well as genetically, with a fascinating family that lived four thousand years ago,” said Frances.
