Humanities Nebraska speaker to appear: Charlotte Endorf will present a 30 minute program on The Life and Legacy of Annie Oakley on February 23, 2015 at 12:00pm at the Loup City Public Library. This presentation is made possible by Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, and the Loup City Public Library as part of the HN Speakers Bureau.She was described as the “greatest woman rifle shot.” A star attraction of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, Oakley thrilled audiences around the world with her daring shooting feats. A champion in a man’s sport, she changed ideas about the abilities of women in the 19th century, yet she opposed female suffrage. Her fame and fortune came from her skill with guns, yet she was a Quaker. Endorf’s presentation guides the audience through these dichotomies and dispels myth to reveal the real Annie Oakley. The program will be followed by a question-and-answer period. Charlotte Endorf has coauthored the following books: “After the Rain Oh the Beautiful Rainbow”, “By Train They Came: Fragile Excess Baggage”, “Bless Your Hearts: The North Platte Canteen”, and “Unsung Neighbors”, to name a few. Bring a “brown bag lunch” and enjoy this opportunity!

TulipsIf you like historical mysteries, these two are a treat!

“Crocodile on a Sandbank” by Elizabeth Peters is the first in the Amelia Peabody series.  Amelia is a spinster in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s.  She inherited a large estate from her father and can now afford to travel the world.  Due to her interest in Egyptology, she plans a trip up the Nile.  Amelia has a tendency to take over and direct people as she sees fit, so when she runs into a well known archeologist (with a well deserved reputation for being rude) the sparks fly.  However, something is amiss in the Valley of the Kings.  Someone is stalking Amelia’s friend, Evelyn.  Is it someone from her past or someone looking to scare away the whole team?

Following the Napoleonic Wars, Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin, returns to England.  Little does he know that he will soon be accused of a heinous crime against a young woman he knew only in passing.  Someone is trying to frame him for murder.  Will he be able to ascertain who the real murderer is or will he hang for a crime he didn’t commit?  Check out “What Angels Fear” by C. S. Harris.

These are indeed two Forgotten Gems worth checking out!
