Spring Athenaeum Series 2011: ‘In a Land Called Honalee: The Sixties in the Lives of American Children’

The Athenaeum Spring Series will present “In a Land Called Honalee: The Sixties in the Lives of American Children” at noon February 23 in Kent Library’s Sadie’s Place. Dr. Joel Rhodes will discuss the imprint of significant historical events during the 1960s on children born between 1956 and 1970, as well as the causal developmental results which may have resonated across the course of their life span. In other words, the question can be asked: How did the unique perspective of these children during the sixties influence their later lives as adults? Dr. Rhodes is also researching and writing a book on the 1960s as seen through the eyes of American children born between 1956 and 1970. If you would like to contribute an oral history to this project, please contact Dr. Rhodes at: jrhodes@semo.edu. The event is open to all and refreshments will be served.
