Description:
 In "The Dog Stars," Hig survives an influenza outbreak that wipes out 99 percent of the U.S. population. While we’ve not seen an outbreak of those proportions, the world has encountered deadly flu pandemics, the worst of which was the Spanish Flu. That 1918 flu pandemic killed three to five percent of the world's population—making it one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history. Join Kelly Cannon-Miller of the Des Chutes Historical Museum at the library to learn about the influenza epidemic of 1918 and how it affected Central Oregon.
