A big thanks to the people at Cave Springs for inviting John Hacker and me to talk about our book, 5:41: Stories from the Joplin Tornado Saturday.
I apologize for the quality of the video. Sadly, it is a video I had to shoot from another video because of mistakes I made on the first one. In the video, John talks about what he did on May 22 when the tornado hit and details some of the stories in the book.
For those of you who have not had the pleasure of seeing the old Cave Springs School, it is a one-room schoolhouse located near the Jasper/Lawrence county line. It was fully active from 1838 to 1966 and has been refurbished in recent years. I will post photos later.
