Welcome to The Exchange on SPM. I’m MH.  This week, we presented a live edition of The Exchange at the Sioux City Public Library. The topic was the effect of tariffs on agricultural and industrial products.  Those tariffs were issued in retaliation for tariffs President Donald Trump announced a little over a year ago.  Those tariffs focused on China but affected other countries like Canada as well.   

My guests were:

Dave Bernstein, Sioux City,  Co-Owner of State Steel, Sioux City

Dr. Sam Funk,  Head of Analytics and Research at the Iowa Farm Bureau

CIO: Red Queen

Jan 25, 2019

This is Kelsey Patterson with the Sioux City Public Library and you’re listening to Check It Out.

During these dreary months of winter after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season has died down, I love to curl up on the couch and dive into stories that take me to other worlds. There’s just something about reading something fantastical book that makes the chill of winter just a little bit more bearable.  

Today, I’m recommending Red Queen, the first book in the New York Times bestselling series of the same name by Victoria Aveyard.
