Iowa author Linda Betsinger McCann will be speaking about the Civilian Conservation Corps. Back in the 1930's the Great Depression cost many Americans their jobs, homes and security. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) offered young men the chance to provide for their struggling families and change the landscape of the country by planting trees, creating lakes and many other projects. Linda is a delightful storyteller who has widely researched the activities of the Civilian Conservation Corps. She will be available for questions, book sales and autographs, and is the author of many Iowa history books. This event is free and open to the public.
