“The Children’s Blizzard” by Melanie Benjamin is a novel based on actual oral histories of survivors. The morning of January 12, 1888 was unusually warm, following a punishing cold spell. Children had returned to school without their heavy coats. At the hour for school to let out, a fast-moving blizzard swept in without warning. School teachers were faced with an impossible decision: keep the children inside to risk freezing when the fuel ran out or send them home, praying they wouldn’t get lost in the storm. “The Children’s Blizzard” is also available digitally in Libby/Overdrive.
