Final 2011 One Book One Lincoln program announced!

December 01, 2011 by sdc
On Sunday, December 11, 2011, at 2:00 p.m., at Bennett Martin Public Library, 136 So. 14th Street, Lincoln, Neb., a panel of medical professionals from Lincoln will share their experience volunteering in medical mission projects abroad, including Africa, Haiti, and Mexico. Learn about the challenges and rewards of providing care in other cultures, and reflections on the ethics and practice of international aid.

The 2011 One Book - One Lincoln selection, Cutting for Stone, is set in large part in a mission hospital located in Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. Missing Hospital, as it is known to locals, is staffed primarily by "ferengi" or foreigners: doctors and nurses from Britain and India and support staff from the neighboring region of Eritrea. Abraham Verghese's novel is set against political unrest and the theme of belonging.

Program panelists include Dr. Yvonne Davenport, MD (Ob-Gyn) and 2011 One Book-One Lincoln selection committee member; Elizabeth Jacobs-Fitzgerald, RNC-OB, BSN; Karen McGivney-Liechti, CNM, MSN; and Jearlyn Schumacher, CNM

This event is free and open to the public. Because of the subject matter of this program, some material may not be suitable for young children.

Come join us for this final 2011 One Book - One Lincoln program!

Third One Book 2009 video now available online

November 21, 2009 by sdc
For those who were unable to attend the following Special Program associated with the 2009 One Book One Lincoln, a video recording is now available via the Lincoln City Libraries YouTube channel. The program is broken up into several segments, so make sure you follow through to all parts if you wish to enjoy the entire program.

The following program is the latest one available from our 2009 special events:

"An Interfaith Journey Towards Peace: A Discussion", presented by Timothy Schaffert, Director of the Nebraska Summer Writers' Conference. See it on YouTube.

The Sarajevo Haggadah was treasured and protected by many people as it passed through generations. The people of this book were of many faiths, but each risked their own life and called upon their own faith, as they sought to ensure the safety of this holy book. Please join us for an opportunity to meet people of other faiths and traditions as we explore the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Islam and Christianity) represented in People of the Book. Panel members, Dr.Sarah Kelen, Assistant Professor of English, Nebraska Wesleyan University; Zainab Al-Baaj, MENA Hope Coordinator, Lincoln Good Neighbor Center; Claudia Koziol, Development and Communications Director, Project Interfaith, Omaha, Nebraska and Reverend Dr. Otis Young, senior minister emeritus, First-Plymouth Congregational Church, Lincoln will join moderator Reverend Jamie Norwich McLennan, Associate Pastor, First United Methodist Church, to talk about matters of spirituality, history and tradition as observed by each faith and share their personal experiences. They will also discuss the relationships these religions have had over the centuries and ask the audience to join in discussing the present day search for peace and cooperation among all faiths.

Watch for more One Book One Lincoln video programming coming in the near future...
