Nonfiction Book Discussion: The Worst Hard Time (Virtual)

Monday, September 27, 2021 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm
The dust storms that terrorized the Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since. In The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl, author Timothy Egan follows a dozen long-suffering families and their communities through blinding black dust blizzards, crop failure, and the death of loved ones. In an era that promises ever-greater natural disasters, this book provides a powerful cautionary tale about the dangers of trifling with nature. Pick up a copy at the Information Desk or Curbside, read, and join the discussion.
