Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History is making its way into small towns. The rural community of Kewanee, Illinois has a small public library, which has now added my paperback. This is the 23rd national location to house my work.
Kewanee (Indian for prarie chicken) is located near Peoria, and is well known as The Hog Capital of the World. In reality, the town’s largest plant manufactures steam boilers. These well-known boilers were featured in The Blues Brothers movie, and an updated film version of the John Steinbeck’s Cannery Row. Their high school monicker is The Boilermakers (the same nickname as Purdue University).
Middle America has tremendous Midwestern values, and a great place to find Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History.
Until next time> “never forget”
