Reminisce Society

Reminisce Society
Larry Stone and Humanities Iowa Presents
Iowa Portrait of the Land
Tuesday November 27th at 10 am

Join us Tuesday November 27th at the K.C. Hall across from the library for the final Fall Reminisce Society Meeting. This month we have Larry Stone with Humanities Iowa presenting Iowa: A Portrait of the Land. 

Aldo Leopold's "portrait" analogy in a 1939 essay was the basis for the title of the award-winning Iowa Department of Natural Resources book, Iowa-Portrait of the Land. Stone's Powerpoint, like the book, tells the story of the rich land that became our state.  Portrait explores Iowa's geological foundation, its natural communities, the history of its peoples, our precious wild places, the past abuse of our resources, and the challenges of sustaining this land that gives us life. 

The Reminisce Society's programs are free and open to everyone. If you are a person with a disability who requires special assistance or for further information, please call the library's director, Sonja Ferrell at 641-682-7563 extension 202. 

Presented at the K.C. Hall
