We are so happy to announce that we are having a program on Thursday, September 17th at 7:00 p.m. The “Outlaw History through Stories and Music” program, sponsored by Humanities Nebraska, will be held in the Art Gallery at the Columbus Public Library.
Presenters Marci Broyhill and Teresa Kay Orr grew up along Highway 12, Nebraska’s Outlaw Trail. Their rural experience and research are incorporated into melody and narrative poetry. PowerPoint and props will help them to educate while entertaining their audience about obscure, colorful, complex characters and situations of the Western Movement. Some of the characters covered are Doc Middleton, Kid Wade, outlaw’s wives, rustlers vs. vigilantes, and law enforcement. All face covered outlaws and in-laws are invited (but not required).
