January 10, 2015

A national traveling exhibit about the causes and aftermath of the historic Dust Bowl period. The exhibit recalls a tragic period in our history - the drought and dust storms that wreaked havoc on the Great Plains in the 1930s - and explores its environmental and cultural consequences. What caused the fertile farms to turn to dust? How did people survive? What lessons have we learned.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the library will host "It Blew So Hard: The Dust Bowl & Great Depression in Western Kansas," a series of reading discussions.
