Afternoon Book Club

Date: 
6/16/15, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

The Afternoon Book Club will discuss Timothy Egan's "The Worst Hard Time." The dust storms that terrorized America's High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since, and the stories of the people that held on have never been fully told. Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times journalist and author Timothy Egan follows a half-dozen families and their communities, going from sod huts to new framed houses to huddling in basements with the windows sealed by damp sheets in a futile effort to keep the dust out.
