“Methland” had large audience

An audience of more than 100 people crowded into Three Rivers Public Library Wednesday for the culmination of the latest St. Joseph County “One Book, One County” program.

The author presentation featured a 90-minute discussion and question-and-answer session by Nick Reding, author of “Methland.” The book was the second chosen this year by the “One Book, One County” selection committee and eighth overall.

Reding elaborated on what he witnessed in a small Iowa town plagued by meth production and use.

The book was chosen as the featured novel because of the rural and socioeconomic similarities between Oelwein, Iowa, and St. Joseph County.
