Dates and Times:
September 3, 6:30PM-8:00PM

Each year, Omaha Public Library (OPL) encourages the community to join together in reading one book as part of the Omaha Reads campaign. Omaha Reads promotes literacy and provides the City with a common theme to discuss.

This year the nation recognizes the centennial of the First World War. The sacrifices of men and women on the home front, as well as the violence and hatred that swept across America during World War I (WWI) are addressed in Omaha Public Library’s 2014 Omaha Reads selection, The Meaning of Names by Karen Gettert Shoemaker.

Shoemaker will speak at the German-American Society, 3717 S. 120th St., on Wednesday, September 3, 6:30-8 p.m. in the South Hall. The author will discuss her book, and copies will be available for purchase and signing following a Q&A session. This free event is open to the public.

Additional programs will be offered at various OPL locations.
Registration may be required for some programs. More information is available at omahalibrary.org.
