Karen Shoemaker's "The Meaning of Names" is on the recommended reading list for The Humanities Nebraska Governor's Lecture 2015!

Date: Sep 25th, 2015

From Karen's Facebook post:

Check this out: On October 1 at the Holland Center in Omaha, Humanities Nebraska hosts British scholar David Reynolds, who will speak on "World War One: Remembering America's Forgotten War." This is the 2015 Governor's Lecture event and it comes complete with a recommended reading list. There was lots of happy dancing at our house when I found "The Meaning of Names" on the list of recommended novels about the topic. My name right there between Erich Maria Remarque and Edith Wharton. Willa Cather, Ken Follett and Ernest Hemingway are a few of the other names. I get breathless every time I look at that list.



Thank you, Kate and Mark and all the workers at Red Hen for helping me get this novel out into the world. I am so grateful.

So well deserved-- congrats Karen!
