Paul Young will be at the Powerhouse Theatre June 8

Shack author in Vernon

The author of the best-selling book The Shack is coming to Vernon.

Sherman Dahl, with The Emily Dahl Foundation, is bringing Paul Young to the Powerhouse Theatre June 8 for a live/virtual event.

Young is the author of the worldwide bestsellers The Shack and Crossroads. With nearly 23 million copies sold and 49 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the New York Times Bestseller list, The Shack has inspired conversations about God around the world.

The Shack has been included in the PBS list of America’s 100 best-loved books.

“Paul and I will discuss the reality that our purpose in life is to be happy. Emily believed that life is too short to delay happiness. The Emily Dahl Foundation carry’s this powerful message. Paul and I will discuss the need to live deeply so the time here does not go to waste. The quality of our life depends on how deeply we live each moment and not the emotional and material comforts,” said Dahl of what is being billed as a fireside chat.

Tom Watkinson, retired Vernon principal and co- founder of The Emily Dahl Foundation, said the message is an important one.

"I read the book years ago and I really enjoyed it. I just watched the Interview with Paul Young and it is amazing to listen to his experiences that brought him to that place where he found peace within. I am going to get the book and reread it and watch the movie, The Shack. This will be an incredible event for Vernon. The Emily Dahl Foundation is pleased to be hosting Paul Young right here in Vernon,” said Watkinso
