John will present on why so many people have felt and still feel compelled to travel the Mississippi River and produce something about their trip, including painters, writers, photographers, and, now, people using every from of social media. While the individual trips give us snippets of how the river and the country have changed, looking at travel trips over the past 150 years tells us so much more. Dinner will be a House Salad, Mississippi Style Beef Pot Roast or Vegetarian Option, Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Fresh Green Beans, Mississippi Mud Chocolate Cake, and a beverage. Transportation is not provided. Registration Deadline: Thurday, October 20.
