THE OZARKERS

The Library Center at auditorium
For Adults.

Between the First and Second World Wars, the nation accepted the Ozarks as a remote region populated by a backwoods people resistant to change, missing the complexity of the area beneath the mythology built around it. Discussing the conclusion to his acclaimed trilogy, "The History of the Ozarks, Volume 3: The Ozarkers," Dr. Brooks Blevins will discuss how the story of the Ozarks is a quintessentially American story more consistent with the mainstream than is sometimes depicted, and explain how Ozarkers were affected by poverty and geographic barriers, painting a more accurate picture of the region that exists where myth and reality meet. Books will be available for sale and signing.
