Landing After Hours: Modern Missouri Masters of Fiction: Evan S. Connell and Daniel Woodrell

12/2/2020 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO

This event will be held virtually. The program will be at 7 p.m. on the Missouri State Museum's Facebook page.

Missouri possesses a rich and diverse literary heritage. Two modern authors, Evan S. Connell and Daniel Woodrell, deserve a place alongside Twain and Angelou as writers who have chronicled Missouri’s unique place in America’s cultural landscape. Connell’s novels “Mrs. Bridge” and “Mr. Bridge” evoke the early history of the Country Club Plaza district in Kansas City, while Woodrell’s novels “Winter’s Bone,” “Tomato Red” and “Woe to Live On” offer a lyrical and unvarnished perspective of survival in the Ozarks. Come learn about how these masters of fiction have shaped Missouri’s modern identity.

The Missouri State Museum’s "Landing After Hours" events are held the first Wednesday of each month.
