FILM TO ANSWER THE ‘KANSAS PROBLEM’
Filmmaker Joe Winston will answer what has been on Emporia’s mind since William Allen White asked the question in 1896: “What’s the Matter with Kansas?”
In the film documentary that Roger Ebert calls “One of the 10 best documentaries of 2009,” Winston works to uncover how Kansas grew from a Democratic state to, as said in his film, “a stronghold for Republicans.”
The screening of “What’s the Matter with Kansas” will be at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 22 at the Granada Theater and is free to the public. A Q&A session hosted by Winston will follow.
Audience members are encouraged to prepare for the session by attending the Emporia Public Library’s discussion over Thomas Frank’s book, “What’s the Matter with Kansas?”
The discussion will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 2 at the Emporia Public Library.
