Kansas Author Jim Hoy Hosts January Program

The 149th anniversary of Kansas’ admission to the Union is just around the corner (January 29th), and we’ve been featuring Kansas-oriented books throughout the library all month. But the best is yet to come.

Just two days before Kansas’ birthday, popular Kansas author Jim Hoy will host a special program on the Folklore of the American West here in the Haysville Community Library Common Room, at 6:30 Wednesday evening, January 27th.

Pie, coffee and other refreshments will be served by the Friends of the Library.

Dr. Hoy is Professor of English at Emporia State University and the author or co-author of nine books, including Flint Hills Cowboys: Tales of the Tall Grass Prairie, writes a weekly newspaper column, Plains Folk (along with Tom Isern), and is a very popular lecturer at schools and before community and professional groups. (For more information on Professor Hoy, see his biography page at the Emporia State University website.)

Please join us this next Wednesday for a very entertaining and enlightening program.
