SummaryJoin us for a book group at the Beacon Hill Branch. Everyone is welcome. This month’s title is "The Worst Hard Time" by Timothy Egan.
Book DescriptionThe dust storms that terrorized the High Plains in the darkest years of the Depression were like nothing ever seen before or since. Timothy Egan’s critically acclaimed account rescues this iconic chapter of American history from the shadows in a tour de force of historical reportage. Following a dozen families and their communities through the rise and fall of the region, Egan tells of their desperate attempts to carry on through blinding black dust blizzards, crop failure, and the death of loved ones.
