This event is sold out. No waitlist is available.

Join HK at the Sheraton Overland Park for a fast-paced conversation about class and rural America with special guest Sarah Smarsh, author of "Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth."

Enjoy free food and a cash bar as we let our conversations go where they go and inspire one another with new ideas.

Doors and the cash bar open at 5:30pm. The presentation begins at 6:30pm.

Sarah Smarsh is an author, speaker, and journalist who focuses on socioeconomic class and rural America. Her book "Heartland: A Memoir of Working Hard and Being Broke in the Richest Country on Earth," an instant New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the National Book Award, examines economic inequality through her upbringing among the working poor on a Kansas farm.

The Raven Book Store will be selling copies of "Heartland" and a book signing follows the event.

This event is presented in partnership with the Kansas Library Association.

Please note: The event is in the Cottonwood 2 Ballroom of the Sheraton. Please note that the event is at the hotel, not at the adjacent Overland Park Convention Center. The hotel is located to the west of the convention center.
