Course detail: OSH270 - Kansas Literature: A Dozen Writers You Should Know but Probably Don't!

Throughout history, Kansas writers have been creating a significant body of work that defines, refines and shakes up our image of the Sunflower State. There's "The Sage of Potato Hill," whose "Story of a Country Town" (1882) began the revolt against the nostalgically drawn rural town. And Edythe Squier Draper, whose stories were known for their innovative style and quirky subjects. And Andrew Milward and his brilliant take on Kansas history in "I Was a Revolutionary: Stories" (2015). Join us for a look at a dozen writers you should know about and read.
