METHLAND IN THE MIDWEST

Journalist and native Midwesterner Nick Reding spent four years living off and on in Oelwein. Along with the book’s three principal characters, Methland follows the traffickers, addicts, federal agents, and politicians whose lives make up a uniquely contemporary American tragedy, blending sociology, history, and thousands of hours of eyewitness reporting into a real-life account that reads like a novel.
Reding will be speaking about his book, Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town, at 7:30 pm on Thursday, September 20, at the Dole Institute of Politics, 2350 Petefish Drive in Lawrence. The event is cosponsored by the Lawrence Public Library as part of Read Across Lawrence 2012. www.methlandbook.com/
