Marilyn Holt, author of The Orphan Trains: Placing Out in America will speak at 2:00 on Saturday, April 18. She discusses the “orphan trains” which brought poor children from the eastern cities to rural Kansas from 1867 until the 1920s. She relates firsthand accounts of orphan train riders which challenge our picture of childhood in the “good old days.”
