On 22 September, David W. Tarbet will be giving a presentation based on his new book Grain Dust Dreams published by SUNY Press. He will examine the difficulties and dangers of working in a grain elevator—showing how they operate and describing the effects that the grain trade has on the lives of individuals and cities from their invention in Buffalo, New York, through their present-day operation in Thunder Bay. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the presentation.

Since 1908, the Thunder Bay Historical Museum Society (TBHMS) has been regularly holding talks on a wide range of topics on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Thunder Bay Museum (425 Donald Street East) from September to April. The TBHMS's 2015-16 Lecture series is being sponsored by the Department of History and forms part of its 2015-16 Speaker Series.
