Reminder — Final One Book – One Lincoln 2010 Program!

One Book - One LincolniamamanJust a reminder to those who are interested in participating in One Book One Lincoln programming — the final public event of the 2010 One Book season (barring late-scheduled programs) is this coming Tuesday evening:

Native American Law After Standing Bear

Tuesday, November 30, 2010, 7:00 p.m.
Gere Branch Library
2400 S. 56th St.

John Snowdensnowden, 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.
