This weekend features two of this year’s One Book – One Lincoln special programming events!
First, on Friday evening (November 7th), from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., visit the Bennett Martin Public Library downtown after our normal closing time, to participate in the First Friday Art Walk, and take in a One Book – One Lincoln display of lighthouse-themed artwork by artists from the Lincoln community! Artwork will officially be unveiled to the public this evening, and then will remain on display throughout the month of November at the downtown library, for your ongoing enjoyment. But…by joining us during the First Friday Art Walk, you’ll have the opportunity to meet and talk to some of the artists whose works are in the show!
Second, on Sunday afternoon (November 9th), starting at 2:00 p.m., at the Walt Branch Library (6301 S. 14th St.), join the members of the Lincoln and Lancaster County Genealogical Society for a look at the difficulties of tracking personal history years after the fact. What if Tom and Isabel had kept Lucy and she had only found out the truth many years later — what sources could she have used to track down her real personal history? For genealogy fans and One Book – One Lincoln fans alike!
We hope to see several of you this weekend at one of the One Book – One Lincoln special events! Don’t forget – at each public event, a signed copy of M.L. Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans will be given away to one lucky attendee! You can also fill out our online drawing form for one additional chance at a signed copy of this year’s book! (One online entry per person)
