Kansas farm girl and writer Sarah Smarsh is the author of It Happened in Kansas and Outlaw Tales of Kansas and has written for The Huffington Post and many other publications. 


Sarah will read excerpts from It Happened in Kansas and lead a discussion on the intersection between Kansas agriculture and politics in written expression, from Populist newspapers of the late 1800s to current social-media platforms such as AgChat. She wants to hear from YOU about how writers and other creative or media professionals can give voice to the needs and experiences of farmers and small-town Kansans. If you’ve ever complained about the media, here’s your chance to help shape its future!
