Adult Book Club- One Book One Sioux County

June 6 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

- Free

The Adult Book Club will meet on July 6 at 5:30 pm to discuss the 2017 One Book One Sioux County selection The Boys in the Bunkhouse by Dan Barry. Copies of the book may be checked out at the front desk.

In the tiny Iowa farm town of Atalissa, dozens of men, all with intellectual disability and all from Texas, lived in an old schoolhouse. Before dawn each morning, they were bussed to a nearby processing plant, where they eviscerated turkeys in return for food, lodging, and $65 a month. They lived in near servitude for more than thirty years, enduring increasing neglect, exploitation, and physical and emotional abuse—until state social workers, local journalists, and one tenacious labor lawyer helped these men achieve freedom.
