Join Tim Bascom and K.L. Barron for a book reading at Flint Hills Books in Council Grove on Saturday, March 11 from 2-3pm!
Reading Outside the Cultural Box
Please join us for a reading featuring landscapes and cultures of East and West Africa: the rugged mountains and plateaus of Ethiopia and the edge of the Sahara in Niger. Tim Bascom spent half his childhood in Ethiopia and will share both memoir and fiction detailing Ethiopian culture. K.L. Barron lived among the nomads of Niger for a time and will read from her novel Thirst, which captures the dominating desert landscape and some of the nomads’ endangered traditional culture so reminiscent of traditional Native American cultures on the prairie.
