Lewis and Clark, the famous explorers
were successful thanks to a man by
the name of George Drouillard. His
story, fully costumed and
accompanied by a French accent, is
told by Darrel Draper. Join Drouillard in the exciting adventures of the Lewis
and Clark
expedition.


Iowa's veterans of the 19th and 20th
century, as Michael Vogt knows,
have left behind various materials to
share their stories. What was life like
as a solder in the eyes of these men?
Vogt provides such a view with his
presentation on Solder Voices: The
Iowa National Guard and the Spanish-
American War
and Camp Dodge:
Home Away From Home, 1917-1918
. Come experience the life of Iowa's
veterans.

How difficult is it to translate a poem
from one language to another? Ask
Danuta Hutchins. She serves as a
poet and will often translate poems,
but has humorous commentaries in
the translations of Slavic poems
including the idiomatic and cultural
differences between the original and
English translation. Laugh out loud as
Hutchins offers a very personal
vantage point.
