Many of you enjoyed the reading and craft talk by Robert Olmstead at our 2017 Fall Literary Festival. Join us for a conversation about Olmstead’s Savage Country. “For weeks countless swarms of locusts, brown-black and brick-yellow, darkened the air like ash from a great conflagration, their jaws biting all things for what could be eaten.”
You can find copies of the book at the Mahoning and Trumbull County libraries, YSU Maag Library via OhioLink, from the publisher, and at the YSU Barnes & Noble.
Food for Thought book discussion will be hosted by our community partner Cultivate Cafe, 901 Elm St., on Wednesday, January 9, from 6:00-7:00 pm. If you would like to order a bite to eat, please arrive well before the counter closes at 6:00. Haven’t read the book yet? No worries. Join us.
