One Book - One Lincoln events this weekend!

October 11, 2013 by sdc
One Book - One Lincoln fans...

We hope you've enjoyed (or are enjoying) reading The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce, the book your votes helped to pick as this year's One Book - One Lincoln winning title!

The next few days offer you two opportunities to actively engage with other fans of OBOL:

------------------------------------
Walk in Wyuka

Sunday, October 13 2013, 2:00 p.m.
Wyuka Cemetery
3600 "O" St.

Take a literary pilgrimage by joining Lincoln historian Ed Zimmer on a walking tour, as he guides you to various graves and points of interest in Lincoln's largest and oldest cemetery -- with a focus on individuals with a literary significance in Lincoln's history -- authors, editors, publishers, etc.

Participants should meet at the Chapel to begin this walk!

--------------------------------------

One Book - One Lincoln: Community Book Discussion
Walt Branch Library

6701 S. 14th St.
Monday, October 14 2013 - 2:00 p.m.
[if you have questions, call 402-441-4460]

--------------------------------------

All the other special programs are posted on the One Book - One Lincoln programs page -- checked it out for full details. One specific note -- If you wish to take part in the Tea & Talk event at The Ferguson House on Sunday, November 17th, reservations are needed for that event due to the limited seating. Information on making reservations is available on the events page.
