UNO Faculty to Share Literary Works at Joslyn Castle May 5
Omaha - In a partnership between the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Department of English, Department of History, the School of Communication and the Writing Center, three UNO authors will be presenting their works with a reading at the Joslyn Castle on Thursday, May 5.
The event, which is part of the Joslyn Castle’s 'History Lives' educational series, begins at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Refreshments will be available following the three readings.
The authors, all faculty members at UNO, are Kenneth Flint, an instructor for the Department of English; Hugh Reilly, an associate professor for the School of Communication; and Michael L. Tate, Chair of Graduate Studies for the Department of History.
Kenneth Flint is the author of sixteen published novels, including his latest work, Fort Atkinson, which he will read from at the event. His books cover subjects based mostly in the history and folklore of Britain, America and Ireland – including the best-selling Sidhe trilogy.
Hugh Reilly will read from Bound to be Blood: Frontier Newspapers and the Plains Indian Wars, a non-fiction workwhich emphasizes eyewitness accounts of eight watershed events between 1862 and 1891 including the Battle of Little Big Horn, the Trial of Standing Bear, and the Massacre at Wounded Knee.
Michael Tate will discuss his book Indians and Emigrants: Encounters on the Overland Trails. The book examines how, despite thousands of friendly exchanges between the Indians and pioneers, the Plains Indians were portrayed as the white man's worst enemy.
