From the TALK series, Ad Astra: Working Hard in the Heartland
Discussion Leader: Sandra Wiechert

Kansan Sarah Smarsh writes about growing up in rural Kansas during the 1980s and 1990s. She moves beyond a Kansas love story, however, and openly discusses taboo topics such as money (or lack thereof), teen pregnancy, divorce, and depression. Chronicling her family's hard-scrabble life and struggles to make ends meet, Smarsh speaks about the toll of working on the working class.
