Red Cloud, NE 68970

Nebraska author Theodore Wheeler will talk about his World War I-era novel Kings of Broken Things and sign copies in the Red Cloud Opera House gallery in honor of Veteran's Day. Wheeler received the 2018 Nebraska Book Award for Fiction Honor for Kings of Broken Things. Set in Omaha and filled with its history, the novel is an immigrant coming-of-age story set amid the domestic strife of World War I, the machine-boss era politics in Nebraska, and events surrounding the lynching of Will Brown during the Red Summer of 1919.  Wheeler is a fiction writer, college professor, and legal reporter in Omaha, and we're thrilled to offer his work in this excellent Regional Focus section of our bookstore.
