The Summer Reading program ends today; however, I would like to have a “Superhero” Veteran talk to the kids and then we could make t-shirts with hand flag on the front and saying on back. The fantastic employees at Kings told me they could help me. However, I would like to see if there is any interest before begging someone’s free time. Please let me know if your kids would be interested in attending this program.

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!
