Let’s Talk About It, Idaho! Barbara Meldrum Discusses “Home Below Hell’s Canyon”
7 p.m.
1912 Center
412 E. Third St. in Moscow
The fourth in the five-part Let’s Talk About It, Idaho! series will feature Barbara Meldrum as she presents “Home Below Hell’s Canyon” by Grace E. Jordan. In her autobiography, Jordan describes life on a remote sheep ranch in the 1930s in the Snake River Canyon south of Lewiston. Grace, her husband, Len, and their three children move to the gorge during the Depression and become self-sufficient. Their lives are centered around family, hard work and common sense in a landscape many would consider extreme. Len Jordan later became an Idaho governor and U.S. senator. Speaker Barbara Meldrum is a professor emerita of English at the University of Idaho. The book talks call attention to Idaho history as an historical milestone begins, the state’s territorial sesquicentennial year. The theme of this year’s readings and discussions, “Idaho at 150 – Sesquicentennial Days,” explores life in early Idaho and the challenges faced by people settling and developing the state. The University of Idaho Library is partnering with the Moscow Public Library to provide the talks, which bring adult readers together with humanities scholars to discuss fine literature.
