Join us for next week’s NCompass Live, “Nebraska 150 Books: Celebrating Nebraska’s Sesquicentennial Through Literature”, on Wednesday, August 17, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Nebraska 150 Books is a community reading initiative held in conjunction with the Nebraska 150 Sesquicentennial Celebration. This reading program provides the opportunity for Nebraskans to recognize our shared heritage through books. The power of literature to help us understand culture, community and a shared history is the impetus behind the Nebraska 150 Books project. In this program, you will learn the process for developing a compelling reading list, how to create a successful marketing campaign for a community reading initiative, and how to get readers excited about regional authors and their books!

Presenters: Erin Willis, Curator, Heritage Room of Nebraska Authors, Bennett Martin Public Library and Judy Keetle, Chair, Nebraska 150 Books Selection Committee.
