###The Nebraska Book Festival, taking place on Sept. 7 in UNL’s city campus union, is held to celebrate Nebraska’s literary heritage and contemporary authors and to stimulate public interest in books, reading, and the written word. By gathering together contemporary writing talent of our state and surrounding areas, the festival provides an opportunity for participants to cultivate an understanding of our history, culture and community. Support for the Nebraska Book Festival comes from Nebraska Center for the Book, Nebraska Library Commission, University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln City Libraries, Friends of the University of Nebraska Press, and Union Bank.
