Worst Hard Time

This historical recount of the Dust Bowl period in the US, compounded by the depression, gives readers an understanding of daily life and challenges during the "worst hard time." Very informative, yet a compelling page turner.

Wild World

This book brought to life that very turbulent period in American history when citizens used their freedom of speech to protest the Viet Nam war. One of the students killed at Kent State was Allison Krause, who was from our small town, Churchill, PA. The community was in shock that that could happen on an American campus;. It was inspirational that one of the students, Steve Logan, the main character, was motivated to make a difference standing up to corruption right there in Providence. It's essential all Americans have the courage to speak truth to power.
Very good read!

Our No Pressure Book Club read this book as our March selection. It examined the characters dealing with the "aftermath" of a senseless suicide. The book provided many avenues for discussion.
