Lincoln City Libraries invites the public to a free presentation Sunday, October 21 by Joel Green, the author of a new book, Robber’s Cave: Truths, Legends, Recollections. The program begins at 2 p.m. at the Heritage Room of Nebraska Authors on the third floor of the Bennett Martin Public Library, 136 S. 14th Street. The program is part of the John H. Ames Reading Series, which showcases Nebraska authors reading their own works.
In his book, Green, a local teacher and Robber’s Cave tour guide, tracks the cave’s ownership through the past century and beyond. The books is full of photographs and stories about those who have used the cave, including Native Americans, the Underground Railroad, Lincoln’s first brewery, Coxey’s Army, the Ku Klux Klan and possibly Jesse James.
