Here are the opportunities you have to interact with One Book – One Lincoln in the next few days:
On Saturday, October 9th, after visiting the Farmer’s Market in the downtown Haymarket district, stop in at Indigo Bridge Books in the Creamery Building at 701 “P” St. for a book discussion of I Am a Man, led by one of our library staff members. The discussion group starts at 2:00 p.m. and should end around 3:00.
On Tuesday, October 12th, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., you may join fellow readers for a library-led discussion of I Am a Man at the A Novel Idea used bookstore, 118 N. 14th St., also in downtown Lincoln.
Throughout September, a special episode of City Focus about One Book – One Lincoln aired on the city’s public-access channel 5. That episode is still on City 5 TV’s on-demand channel online. Click here to view (you’ll need RealPlayer installed on your computer).
A little further ahead:
The organizers of One Book – One Lincoln are pleased to announce that author Joe Starita will be giving a public talk about the research and writing of I Am a Man, and the issues that the book addresses, in the Rotunda of the Nebraska State Capitol Building, on Sunday, November 7th, starting at 2:00 p.m. Starita will follow his presentation with a Q&A session, and will then sign copies of the book for anyone who brings theirs along or who purchases a copy from the Landmark Store gift shop in the Capitol’s lower level. This event is co-sponsored by The Lincoln City Libraries, The Nebraska Library Commission and the Nebraska Center for the Book.
