Bess Streeter Aldrich Spring Banquet
April 8, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Celebrating a Nebraska 150 book, A Lantern in Her Hand, the Bess Streeter Aldrich Foundation will host its Annual Spring Banquet on Saturday, April 8. In the novel, the main character Abbie Deal gives up on her music and art aspirations to homestead in Nebraska and raise a family in trying pioneering conditions. The Aldrich Foundation will embrace Nebraska music, art, and writing at the banquet with music by the Harvest Harmonizers, a photography exhibit in the historic Aldrich home, and the announcement of the 2017 Bess Streeter Aldrich Short Story Contest winners. This year short story writers were encouraged to embrace the Nebraska Sesquicentennial by infusing Nebraska in their stories. Tickets are $12.50 and can be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning 402-994-3855.
