One Book – One Lincoln fans —
Two new One Book – One Lincoln events have been added to the One Book calendar. For those who are interested and available to attend, here’s the information about the Native American Law Since Standing Bear:
Tuesday, November 30th, 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.
In addition, another local appearance by Joe Starita has been announced — although not sponsored by Lincoln City Libraries. Our friends at Indigo Bridge Bookstore will be hosting an appearance by Starita on November 21st at their store, He will read from I Am a Man, and discuss his experiences writing it. He will also sign copies after his presentation. This appearance is in part to celebration Native American History Month in November.
