Join us at the Mead Cultural Education Center at noon Friday, June 7, for the monthly Feed Your Mind program.
For June we welcome Rich Lofthus, professor of history at Mount Marty College. He will be discussing his book “From Wentworth to the Western Front.”
“Lofthus examines the war front and home front from the perspective of the Private John Warns family correspondence. It places that correspondence into the wider context of the era,” describes the SD Humanities Council. “The story that emerges reveals the dramatic extent to which rural America was drawn into the maelstrom of events surrounding World War One.”
Feed Your Mind is our monthly, first Friday, program formerly known as our Brown Bag Luncheon. Visitors are welcome to bring their lunch and enjoy the speaker. There is no charge to attend the program, but a free-will donation is always appreciated.
Community programs, like this one, fulfill the Mead Cultural Education Center’s mission to preserve and protect the heritage and culture of Yankton’s history. This program is made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
