Museum to host program on Saturday

Thursday, April 22, 2010

"Yup - Nope and Why Midwesterners Don't Say Much" is a program that will be presented by Barbara Lounsberry on Saturday at 7:30p.m. at the Sanford Museum. This program is free and open to the public, plus refreshments will be served

Born and raised in Iowa, Professor Lounsberry from UNI believes Iowa culture, like its soil, is incredibly rich. This half-in-jest, whole-in-earnest presentation (with slides) explores the historical roots of Midwestern reserve, along with contemporary illustrations. As one Midwesterner deadpanned on return from the East: "We think we are being polite; they think we are slow-witted."
