"Civilian Conservation Corps in Southeast Iowa"

     Iowa author, Linda Betsinger McCann, will be speaking about her book,"Civilian Conservation Corps in Southeast Iowa" on Tuesday, March 26th at 6:00 pm at the Eddyville Public Library's meeting room. (202 South 2nd St.)

     Back in the 1930's the Great Depression cost many Americans their jobs, homes, and security. The CCC offered young men the chance to provide for their struggling families and change the landscape of the country by planting trees, creating lakes, and many other projects. Linda has spoken with 21 men who were in the CCC and shares their memories. She is still searching for more men who were in the CCC.

     Linda will be available for questions, book sales, and autographs. This event is free and open to the public.
