Local CaringBridge Founder, Sona Mehring Launches New Book Hope Conquers All At Mall of America

Eagan, MN (July 23, 2013) —

WHAT:
How did the legacy of one baby inspire hope for millions? Sona Mehring, founder of CaringBridge, reveals in her new book Hope Conquers All how a premature newborn who experienced life for only a few days has impacted the lives of millions of people who depend on CaringBridge as a lifeline of hope.

To date, nearly two billion visits have been logged to personalized sites enabled by CaringBridge’s unique technology. But, it’s the personal stories of encouragement that are the hallmark of what is considered one of the first online social networking sites.

The book launch will feature a signing with Mehring and a special guest reading from Aaron Holm who will share from his chapter in Hope Conquers All recounting his inspirational experience with CaringBridge during recovery from a horrible accident. Attendees will also hear from Mehring directly about her many motivations behind this work.
