You are cordially invited to join us at the Visitor Center of the Magoffin Home State Historic Site for refreshments and a lively discussion of books that shaped an era. We have curated a collection of books published from 1808 to 1886 that reflect a wide range of experiences of people living during those years. All of the reading selections can be found for free at gutenberg.org.
