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.

Final 2010 One Book One Lincoln program is tonight!

November 30, 2010 by sdc

Just a reminder to those who are interested in participating in One Book One Lincoln programming -- the final public event of the 2010 One Book season is tonight:

Native American Law After Standing Bear

Tuesday, November 30, 2010, 7:00 p.m.
Gere Branch Library
2400 S. 56th St.

John Snowden, Professor Emeritus at the UNL Law College, will discuss the history of Native American law from the period after Standing Bear's trial to today. A Lincoln City Libraries staff representative will provide some background on the Standing Bear story and the One Book experience. Professor Snowden's presentation will last approximately 20-25 minutes, followed by questions from the audience.

Professor Snowden is an authority on Native American law from the mid-19th century to the present and has taught courses on the subject. Note that the program will not be an examination of the Standing Bear trial, but more of a look at how Native law since that time has impacted first peoples.
