KPR Presents: The 2021 Kansas Book Festival
Week of September 12, 2021: It's a sneak peek at the Kansas Book Festival, taking place next weekend at Washburn University in Topeka. We'll visit with Festival Director Tim Bascom about the Festival, now in its 10th year of celebrating Kansas authors and books. We'll also hear from Topeka author Tom Averill, who curated two book-themed exhibits at Washburn. Plus, the final chapter of "Where It Hurts," a look at the closing of Mercy Hospital in Fort Scott and its effect on that town's health care, economy, and sense of community.
