Fort Hays State University history professor Leo Oliva discusses "Letters from the Dust Bowl," a collection of writings authored Caroline Henderson in the heart of Dust Bowl in the 1930s. Her work was regularly published in the Atlantic Monthly magazine. Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns used Henderson's letters in his 2012 film "The Dust Bowl."

Guest musician Thad Beach will provide songs and stories that explore the Dust Bowl era, including seven songs inspired interviews with Western Kansas Dust Bowl survivors.

This event is part of a series of reading discussions that support the exhibit "Dust, Drought, and Dreams Gone Dry."
