Program Description

Event Details

Join the Forest Avenue Library for a film presentation from the State Historical Society of Iowa. We'll be watching one Iowa History 101 film each third Tuesday from February until November. This month, Kristy Nabhan-Warren, University of Iowa Professor, shares historical and ethnographic research on meatpacking, migration, and religious faith in the state of Iowa. She also shares what led to this focus and why histories and ethnographies of Iowa and its rural past and present matter.
