Stearns History Museum Breakfast Club


Register 2023-09-26 17:34 2023-09-26 17:34 Europe/London Stearns History Museum Breakfast Club

Author Connie Lounsbury will talk about Hobos of the Great Depression at 9am on Wednesday, August 14th at the Stearns History Museum’s Breakfast Club. How did folks survive when hundreds of thousands of people were unemployed with no prospects in sight? What did a 14-year-old boy do when his father told him to leave because the family couldn’t afford to feed him anymore? Many became migrant workers who rode the rails in search of work and a better life. Lounsbury did a tremendous amount of research on the subject for her historical novel, “A Hobo’s Wish,” a heart-wrenching story about second chances, love, and forgiving oneself during the Great Depression. She gathered more information than could be used in the book that she turned it into a presentation. Lounsbury of Monticello has written seven books and 34 short stories that have appeared in the United States and Japan. She has won several awards and coaches and collaborates with others to write their stories. Her mission is to help others be the best that they can be. The Breakfast Club program is free for Stearns History Museum members and is $7 for nonmembers. Refreshments are available. Please join us for this fascinating facet of the Great Depression.
