Women's Night Out
"Heartland" by Sarah Smarsh

Adults Drop-in

Join a lively group of lit lovers for an engaging discussion of a wide variety of books!

During Smarsh's turbulent childhood in Kansas in the '80s and '90s, the forces of cyclical poverty and the country's changing economic policies solidified her family's place among the working poor. Her personal history affirms the corrosive impact intergenerational poverty can have on individuals, families, and communities. Combining memoir with powerful analysis and cultural commentary, this is an uncompromising look at class, identity, and the particular perils of having less in a country known for its excess.

Open to the public and no registration required - just read the book and show up to talk about it! Call 715-621-7230 for more information.
