Nebraska, Our Song

Description

Join the editors and poets of Nebraska Presence, the 2018 One Book One Nebraska selection, in the exploration and celebration of our state's history and people. This program is part reading and part discussion. An editor (or two, depending on availability) and a small group of poets (depending on availability) will read their work, share the story of what inspired their poems, share the challenges of writing about our state, and discuss various themes found in the collection. This presentation encourages participation and can be adapted to the interests of the group, such as the exploration of family relationships, owning one’s voice, the loss of the small farm and agrarian way of life, and the shadow side of “the good life.” Please let us know of your special interests with your request. The audience will have ample time for a Q & A session.
