Big Read: Discussion 11 - Reading Like a Historian
(7:00 PM-8:30 PM)
Location: Downtown Branch
Looking at The Grapes of Wrath through the eyes of the historian provides a fresh approach to viewing the text and the Dust Bowl story. Who left the area and who stayed behind? How does history view the economic depression and the environment then and now? Discussion will be led by Daisy Martin and Julie Minnis.
