Join Dr. Robert Rebein, Associate Professor in the IU School of Liberal Arts, for lunch and a discussion of Dragging Wyatt Earp in which he explores what it means to grow up in, leave, and ultimately return to the iconic Western town of Dodge City, Kansas. In chapters ranging from memoir to reportage to revisionist history, Rebein contrasts his hometown’s Old West heritage with a New West reality that includes salvage yards, beef packing plants, and bored teenagers cruising up and down Wyatt Earp Boulevard.

Purchase of a buffet lunch for $13.00 (dessert and beverages not included) is required to attend this event. Please pre-register here.
