I hope you realize by now that we have a fabulous exhibit at the Dillsboro Public Library! Crossroads: Change in Rural America will be at the library through Sunday, October 20th. The exhibit explores the way life in rural communities has changed in the last 60 years. The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street Division provided the exhibit and Indiana Humanities is the state-wide partner.
In connection with Crossroads, we invite you to come to the Dillsboro Public Library on the evening of September 26th at 6:30 for a presentation by Pamela Carralero on “Valuing Hoosier Communities and Environments.” Pamela will share excerpts from Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver and use those readings to engage us in discussion of how and why we value our Hoosier environment.
Together, we’ll consider how our notions of value can help build relations with Hoosier communities beyond our own to ensure the health of regional relations, livelihoods, and ecologies. All are welcome, and no prior familiarity with Flight Behavior or Kingsolver’s work is necessary.
