Final book discussions take place before June Chautauqua events

People in the panhandle are gearing up for a traveling educational series known as Chautauqua that will coming to the panhandle in June. 

Today at the Legacy of the Plains Museum, a preamble to the Chautauqua celebrations took place with a book discussion on "An Unspeakable Sadness" by David Wishart. 

The book is about the displacement of American Indians during 1962.

Barb Schlothauer, co-chair of the Chautauqua event, says the book discussions lay the groundwork for the background of the historical events that will be covered during the Chautauqua celebrations.  

She says this year’s theme is on the 1962 land deals and how they impacted the westward of the United States. 

"There will be five nights under the big tent with historic characters, with a moderator of Mark Twain every night, and they will be discussion all the issues that happened during 1962."

The big tent for Chautauqua will be in town from June 24th to June 29th.
