Help us welcome poet Bruce Whitacre to Red Cloud! Whitacre will be reading poetry from his book The Elk in the Glade: The World of Pioneer and Painter Jennie Hicks. The book celebrates the life of Jennie Hicks, a landscape painter from rural Nebraska who also happens to be Whitacre's great-grandmother. Hicks' paintings will be displayed at the Dawson County Historical Society and Museum in Lexington, Nebraska, from February 10 – August 31, 2023. Join us for this free reading in our art gallery, and stick around for a book-signing immediately following the talk.
