ROBERT COLLINS AT THE RAVEN

Robert Collins, author of Kansas: 1874, will be reading and signing at 7 pm on Thursday, October 4, at the Raven Book Store, 6 E 7th Street in Lawrence

Kansas, 1874 recounts the interesting and important events of that tumultous year. 1874 in the Sunflower State was a time of the Wild West and of Indian attacks, but also of a rising poet and debates on temperance. It was the year the Mennonites first arrived, and when Abilene’s T. C. Henry began to promote winter wheat as a good crop for Kansas farmers. Few other years in state history show Kansas in its transition from part of the frontier to its own identity so clearly.
