Start the Dust Bowl Revival weekend joining special guests in a community conversation about poverty issues in rural America, civic engagement, education and more. Followed by the great American classic, The Grapes of Wrath, starring Henry Fonda. Oscar winner directed by John Ford and adapted from John Steinbeck’s novel, this classic drama shows how the Great Depression affects one American family.
