A statewide reading and discussion project sponsored by the Kansas Center for the Book at the State Library of Kansas. Recommended by a committee of experienced and qualified librarians, educators, and authors, Then We Came to the End: A Novel by Joshua Ferris was selected by the State Librarian Jo Budler, reflecting a special collaboration with the Kansas Humanities Council's statewide "The Way We Worked" initiative.

"The Way We Worked" is a Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition that explores the stories of American workers over the past 150 years. The exhibition is coming to Kansas as part of a 6-stop tour supported by the Kansas Humanities Council. Inspired by the theme of work and working, 21 Kansas communities are now conducting oral histories, creating new exhibitions, planning public programs, researching past stories of work, and documenting local workers on the job in the 21st century. Together, these stories help define us: our way of life, our sense of who we are, and the values we hold important. 

An audio version is available through the NLS Talking Books service. It is currently only available for download, but if we have patrons that want to participate in a book discussion at their local library, we will make a copy for them. The book number is DB 65387. Call 1-800-362-0699for more information on audio copies.
