Imagine building a wooden houseboat out of a demolished house and drifting down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans in the 1950s. Could you do it? Anna and Harlan Hubbard not only imagined it, but also succeeded in building and living on their "shantyboat" for several years.
The tale of their travels was composed in the insightful autobiographical novel "Shantyboat," written by Harlan Hubbard. Join the Brown Bag Book Discussion on "Shantyboat." Visitors participating in the book discussion can join us in acknowledging Harlan Hubbard on Kentucky Writer's Day.
