About this event
Author C.J. Janovy will speak about her experiences writing “No Place Like Home: Lessons in Activism from LGBT Kansas” at a Paul A. Olson lecture at the Center for Great Plains Studies. In the book, Janovy, an editor for public radio in Kansas City, MO, shares the diverse voices and experiences of LGBT community members living on the plains and working for social change.

The Stubbendieck book prize celebrates the most outstanding work about the Great Plains during the previous year. This event is part of the Paul A.
