The CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) was a federal program during the Depression years. Men worked at these camps renewing the natural resources. Most Iowans know the work done in our state parks. Linda spoke with 15 men who were in the CCC in Iowa, and shares their memories.
Prohibition was the period in U.S. history when it was illegal to manufacture, transport, or sell liquor in the U.S. This included Iowa. So, why then did Iowa farmers begin using their corn to produce alcohol? Linda spoke with the children of moonshiners and bootleggers and shares their memories.
Everyone is invited and there is no admission charge. Linda will have copies of all her books available for purchase. The books are $20 each and she can only take cash or checks.
