|April 11, 1965 changed the lives of Greentown residents and the look of the town forever. That’s the day that 47 tornadoes tore across 6 states killing 271 people; 10 of them in Greentown. 80 homes were destroyed, not to mention Eastern High School and other businesses. Sadly, it wasn’t the last time that Mother Nature unleashed her fury on our peaceful little community; Greentown would be devastated again in 1998 when a tornado with a nearly identical path struck again.
||Mystery Author, Jeanne M. Dams
Ms. Dams will bring books to sell and sign following the program.
||“I’ve read English mysteries since I was a teen-ager... [It] bred in me a love of England that led to my first mystery series. I knew it was unlikely I could ever afford to live in a lovely little seventeenth-century cottage somewhere in Kent or Sussex—but if I created a character who did just that, I could live her life vicariously, and instead of costing me a fortune, that life would actually make me some money. Such a deal!” - From Jeanne M. Dams official website
Date: Thursday, March 12
