In this fourteenth year of One Book One Nebraska, Nebraska libraries and other literary and cultural organizations continue to plan activities and events to encourage all Nebraskans to read and discuss the same book. Join us to hear more about this statewide reading promotion activity, sponsored by the Nebraska Center for the Book, Humanities Nebraska, The Backwaters Press, and the Nebraska Library Commission.

We are very pleased to announce that our featured guests will be Greg Kosmicki and Mary K. Stillwell, editors of the 2018 selection, 'Nebraska Presence: An Anthology of Poetry'.

  • This program and community of women has been the single most influential piece of my recovery after 11 years of bulimia. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to love themselves and claim a life of joy and freedom. ♥♥♥ http://t.cn/A6Pq6KF6

  • I am so pleased that I found you! I have suffered from Sleep Apnea for years. I have tried everything to fix the problem but nothing has worked. For the last years I have been trying to use a CPAP machine on and off but it is very difficult to sleep with. It's noisy and very uncomfortable. I had no idea there was a natural way to help me. I am so pleased that I found you! ▲▲▲ http://t.cn/AigiCT7Q
