Barish and Mole
1974

Submitter: Another very dated book we weeded. Dated and wrong.┬áIs ANY festival from 1974 still being held in 2020? I looked up my own state, and while the basic information is mostly correct for the time, there are some glaring errors. Mainly, misspelling the Merrie Monarch Festival as “Merry.” This is sacrilege here. However, “mouthwatering Polynesian and Oriental foods” are still part of the state fair, and any fair, really! And the teeny, tiny type!
