Third Mondays Author Series with Barbara Hacha at the Ashtabula Library

To research her work, Barbara Hacha traveled to Britt, Iowa to attend the 111th National Hobo Convention to meet present-day and past hobos. She will discuss her new book, "Mulligan Stew: Stories and Traditions of American Hobos" on October 20.

In this, her second book, she describes the life of hobos at the turn of the 20th Century - women hobos, hero hobos, hobo signs and symbols, and also current hobos.
