Join us for “Getting Life in Kansas” on Monday, Feb. 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the Iola High School Lecture Hall. The program is sponsored by Iola Reads to go along with the reading of the current selection “Getting Life” by Michael Morton. Floyd Bledsoe is a Kansan who, like Michael Morton, spent time in prison convicted of a murder he did not commit. He will be speaking on Monday night, along with Jean Phillips of the Project for Innocence at the University of Kansas School of Law.
The library will be closed Saturday, Sept. 3 through Monday, Sept. 5 for the Labor Day holiday.
Author Lorraine Robinson will talk about the murder case upon which her book “Deadly Affair” is based. The murder occurred in LaCygne in the 1920s. Robinson is the niece of Iolan Jay Thyer. She will sign copies of the book following the program, and will have copies of the book available to purchase.
