EPP: PETALS OF A KANSAS SUNFLOWER

Melvin D. Eppwill read from Petals of a Kansas Sunflower: A Mennonite Diaspora on Saturday, June 8, at 5:00, at Eighth Day Books, 2838 E. Douglas in Wichita.

From Eighth Day Books: His reminiscences frame the poetry of Marie Harder Epp, a farm wife who captures changing textures of Mennonite life in 20th century Kansas: buggies to cars, German to English, isolation to global outreach. A scientist raised on the family farmstead, Melvin returned to Whitewater after retirement and writes from a deep fascination with his Kansas roots.
