Please join the library and the Missouri State Museum to learn about some of Missouri’s most significant trailblazers in this series of online programs. What is a trailblazer, you might ask? A trailblazer is someone who has impacted our culture through major events, leadership, innovation and more! Today's program will highlight authors Evan S. Connell and Daniel Woodrell.
Missouri boasts a proud literary heritage. Mark Twain, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Harold Bell Wright are rightly regarded as authors of classic American fiction. The works of Missourians Evan S. Connell and Daniel Woodrell also deserve a place in the canon of classic American novels. Recent movie adaptations of Connell’s novels "Mrs. Bridge" and "Mr. Bridge" and of Woodrell’s "Winter’s Bone" brought international acclaim to both novelists. Join us for a discussion of the formative influences that shaped these trailblazing novelists’ explorations of Missouri’s cultural identity.
Adults, teens and school-aged kids. Please register to receive a Zoom link.
