Clint Schnekloth will discuss Suzette Haden Elgin’s The Ozark Trilogy at noon on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 for our virtual monthly Shiloh Sandwiched In series. Elgin’s science fiction series is based on the Planet Ozark where Granny women play an important role in society and where Ozark traditions mix with science. Readers follow the heroine, Responsible of Brightwater, as she tries to save her world from evil, civil war, and alien invasion. Visit The Encyclopedia of Arkansas for more about both Elgin and the history of this book’s publication.
