Michaeline Chance-Reay of Kansas State University will lead a discussion on “Standing in the Rainbow” by Fannie Flagg at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. The event will take place at the Council Grove Public Library.
This is the fourth and final book in a four-part “On the Lighter Side” series. Flagg takes us to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where we meet Bobby Smith, a 10-year-old living an idyllic postwar boyhood; his mother, Neighbor Dorothy, broadcasts her Midwest housewife’s radio show; and later on, Tot Whooten, a very incompetent hairdresser; mortician Cecil Figgs; Hamm Sparks, the tractor salesman turned politician and many, many others.
The Talk About Literature in Kansas (TALK) book discussion series is provided by Humanities Kansas (HK), a nonprofit cultural organization with over 40 years of experience promoting understanding of the history and ideas that shape our lives and build community.
