The Dubois Branch Library is hosting an Indiana Scholar in a few weeks.
Dr. Emily Wornell will speak at the library on Tuesday, August 13th at 6:30 pm.
Her talk, “Myths and Facts: The Reality of Immigration in Indiana and Beyond,” will give insights into how immigrants affect those in rural Indiana today.
Dr. Wornell is a research assistant professor at the Indiana Communities Institute at Ball State University. The doctor works with the Center for Business and Economic Research and Rural Policy Research Institute for State Policy. She also specializes in inequality and population change in rural communities.

The event is free and open to the public.
