Monday, April 1st 6:30 - 8:00pm:  'Creating the Black Utopia of Buxton, Iowa'

Meet local author Rachelle Chase who will share stories of the town of
Buxton.  In her first book, Lost Buxton, Chase examined this one-of-a-kind coal
mining town of five thousand residents, established in 1900, where
African Americans and Caucasians lived, worked and attended school together.
 
In her new book, Creating the Black Utopia of Buxton, Chase continues the
story by detailing the amazing events that created such a unique community
and what made it disappear.  Beaverdale Books will have copies available for sale and signing.
