Upcoming Event Sponsored by CBFOL at Old Rock Community Library

We will be discussing The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan at
our next Old Rock Novel Tea on October 31st at 2pm. What Debra Reich says about the
book? You will wonder if you slept through your high school US history
class, for sure. The best thing I can say about the book....I read it even
though it was nonfiction, which is not my cup of tea. I enjoyed learning
about the Dust Bowl and the environmental factors that went into it...plus
the sad, very sad people stories. ]
  I have ordered a bunch for the library...they will come trickling in the
week of Oct 15.
