Yesterday we featured Margy Stewart from the Prairie Heritage Institute who spoke with patrons about the book Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris.
With a demon’s eye for the details that make life worth noticing, Joshua Ferris tells a true and funny story about survival in life’s strangest environment–the one we pretend is normal five days a week.
A lively discussion ensued, centered on the dynamics of the working world and the similarities and differences between a Chicago ad agency and jobs here on the Great Plains.
Margy’s participation in this program was made possible in part by the Kansas Humanities Council, a nonprofit cultural organization promoting understanding of the history, traditions and ideas that shape our lives and build community. The presentation was also affiliated with the Kansas Reads project, from the State Library of Kansas and the Kansas Center for the Book.
