The co-editors discussed their book Children of the Depression, published by Indiana University Press. The book is a collection of images of children taken by Depression-era Farm Security Administration photographers, including Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Walker Evans and Marion Post Walcott. The FSA was a New Deal program designed to assist poor farmers during the Great Depression. In addition to the images, the recollections of people who grew up during the Depression, the observations of social workers and children’s letters to Eleanor Roosevelt comprise the text. A question and answer period followed the slide presentation. close
