What does “Kansas” mean to American popular culture? Any Kansan traveling outside the state’s borders knows that sooner or later, he or she will be asked “Where’s Dorothy?” or told “You’re not in Kansas anymore.” The iconic film adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz has influenced popular conceptions of the state. But Kansas history and themes have also figured significantly in other fictional films produced in Hollywood. Celebrate Kansas Day with us as Thomas Prasch presents Beyond the Yellow Brick Road: Kansas on the Silver Screen. Prasch will discuss what “Kansas” means to American popular culture using excerpts from films for examples. The free program sponsored by the Kansas Humanities Council and hosted by the library and Rice County Historical Society will be held Monday January 30th at 7:00 pm at Celebration Centre, 1145 East Hwy 56 in Lyons.
