WPT and Appleton Public Library to Offer Free Community Screening and Discussion of Ken Burns’ New PBS Documentary The Dust Bowl

Event Date: December, 06 2012

Event Times: 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

This is part 1 of a two-part screening series. The Dust Bowl surveys the causes of the worst man-made ecological disaster in American history, when the frenzied wheat boom of the “Great Plow-Up,” followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s, nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation.

The documentary includes interviews with 26 survivors of those hard times, combined with dramatic photographs and seldom-seen movie footage that bring to life stories of incredible human suffering and perseverance. The documentary also is a morality tale about man’s relationship to the land that sustains us.
Lower-level meeting room at Appleton Public Library at 225 N. Oneida St. in Appleton.
