5th Annual Book Club Blowout - Join us to hear Nebraska author Barbara Mohrman discussion "Dust Covered Dreams" Mohrman said,"As I thought about my family, it occurred to me that it was more than just the daily struggles of how to get dust out of their houses and dealing with tumbleweeds and grasshoppers. Those things were horrendous, but it was also about how their dreams died with the dust came. If my grandfather hadn't worked for the WPA, his family would have starved to death. Dust covered up the dream that was Oakdale and killed the town." Mohrman brings visual aids to her presentations, including her grandmother Hattie's kerosene lamp, clothing made from flour sacks and her father's military uniform.
