Lowell Fewster

In his 2019 memoir, Journey Without Maps: Discovering My Way through the Peace Corps, the Church, Social Justice Ministry & Photography, author Lowell Fewster tells how he was one of the first U.S. Peace Corps contingents in Nigeria in the early 1960 and how that experienced shaped his life. As an American Baptist minister, Lowell has been a pastor, campus minister, seminary administrator and regional church leader.  He and his wife, Julie, attended Susan Omilian’s “From Memory to Memoir” class in Windsor, Connecticut and both produced memoirs.  Lowell wrote of working with Susan:  “Essential help in the creation and writing of this memoir came from Susan — teacher, writing coach and editor. I took her memoir-writing class three times.  (I hope I finally got it right!) Susan has encouraged me, shown me the way and enabled this memoir to become a reality.”
