Meade Public Library had some fun visitors on Tuesday morning – Ronnie Robinson and his daughter, Anne-Sophie, from Denmark. After reading about places in the United States for many years, they decided to come here and are making their way across the western half of the country. They started out in Chicago, Illinois, and will end up in San Francisco, California. After spending a night at Meade State Lake, they will be going to the Dalton Gang Hideout and then up to Holcomb, Kansas, to see where In Cold Blood by Truman Capote took place.
