    Name: Author Talk - April White, author of "The Divorce Colony"
    Date: October 13, 2022
    Time: 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    April White, a historian and senior editor at Atlas Obscura, provides a fascinating account of the daring nineteen-century women who moved to South Dakota to divorce their husbands and start living on their terms.
    For a woman traveling without her husband in the late nineteenth century, there was only one reason to take the train to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, one sure to garner disapproval from fellow passengers. On the American frontier, the new state offered tempting freedom often difficult to obtain elsewhere: divorce.
    April will join us via Zoom to discuss her book. The event is open to the public at no cost. You can attend via Zoom or in the in-person audience at the library.
