Please register to join us for a free showing of the new Idaho Experience documentary, We Sagebrush Folks: Annie Pike Greenwood’s Idaho, on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Historic Wilson Theatre in Rupert.
The documentary takes an in-depth look at the Idaho writer and teacher Annie Pike Greenwood, who penned We Sagebrush Folks. Published in 1934, the memoir chronicles the often grueling lives of farmers and their families in the Hazelton area during the turn of the 20th century, when Greenwood lived there. The book was hailed by the New York Times as “one of the most poignant portrayals yet made of the thankless lives of toil, the hard fates and heroic spirits of the farm women of the West.”
The film also takes viewers into the aging and mysterious Greenwood School, named for the author.
Following the showing, producer Marcia Franklin will lead a Q & A session.
