Omaha Public Library welcomes an array of authors in March
Several authors, each with a unique focus and perspective, will visit Omaha Public Library (OPL) in March. These free events provide an opportunity to meet the authors and learn more about the inspiration behind their work. Books will be available for purchase and signing at most author discussions. More information is available at omahalibrary.org or by calling the hosting OPL location.
Creighton University professor and writer Dr. Eileen Wirth will speak about her new book, From Society Page to Front Page: Nebraska Women in Journalism, at several OPL locations. The book shares the unique and memorable experiences of female journalists who challenged traditional gender roles in journalism, and subtly but surely changed the world.
