MCC Student Book Discussion Group Meeting - September 25
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be trapped in an underground cave? Join the MCC Student Book Discussion Group as we read the tragic story of Floyd Collins.
When Floyd Collins became trapped in a cave in southern Kentucky in early 1925, the sensationalism and hysteria of the rescue attempt generated America's first true media spectacle, making Collins's story one of the seminal events of the century. The crowds that gathered outside Sand Cave turned the rescue site into a carnival. Collins's situation was front-page news throughout the country, hourly bulletins interrupted radio programs, and Congress recessed to hear the latest word. Trapped! is both a tense adventure and a brilliant historical recreation of the past.
Join the discussion on Tuesday, September 25 from 12:15-12:50 p.m. in LRC 213 (MCC Trover Library on North Campus).
