Where will you be one week from today? Thousands of people are expected to turn out next Monday, August 21, in the northeast corner of Kansas to see the total solar eclipse. Watch parties are planned in Atchison, Hiawatha and other small towns to celebrate this once-in-a-lifetime event. KPR's J. Schafer spoke to the economic development director for Doniphan County, Adrienne Korson, to learn what's happening in her community. Korson says their solar eclipse events will begin on Sunday, the day before the big event, in the county seat of Troy.
