On Sunday, March 18, I spoke at the Halstead Historical Museum (at the old Santa Fe depot). I spent much of my time talking about my Kansas, 1874 book. Most of the questions that came after my talk were about the Arkansas Valley Interurban. The AVI was the trolley line that connected Wichita, Newton, and Hutchinson. The AVI ran a block south of the depot, and the Halstead AVI depot still stands. A couple dozen people came to the talk, and I sold a handful of books.
(The photo, BTW, wasn't taken on the 18th.)
I decided to ramble a bit before my talk and take some pictures. Here's one of the shots: an abandoned church in Sylvia.
My next book-selling event is the Cow Creek Book Festival at the Hutchinson library on the 31st. If you're going to be in the area, or know someone who will be, please let them know about the festival.
