Recently, The Omaha Public Library chose Karen Gettert Shoemaker's new novel, The Meaning of Names, as its 2014 Omaha Reads Selection. To complement this, the library interviewed Karen on everything from the beauty of Nebraska to her love of libraries. Here's what Karen had to say about her home state:

"The beauty of Nebraska is the kind that unfolds slowly. Nebraska is a kind of ever-changing canvas: our seasons, our people, our landscape even, are never quite the same from one day to the next."

Not only was Karen interviewed by the Omaha Public Library, she's also on TV! Karen talked to KMTV's The Morning Blend along with Gary Wasdin, Director of the Omaha Public Library, about her book and about the Omaha Reads Campaign.

Congratulations again, Karen!

Cynthia Hogue Featured in The New York Times Sunday Book Review


Cynthia Hogue

Craig Morgan Teicher, editor at Publisher’s Weekly and author of the poetry collection “To Keep Love Blurry,” wrote a Sunday Book Review for The New York Times featuring Cynthia Hogue’s Revenance, as well as the works of Simone Muench, Fanny Howe, and J.D. McClatchy. Read Teicher’s take on Hogue’s collection of poetry below:

“Hogue’s mind is projective more than receptive, well suited to the kind of visual art that requires viewers to reach out with their imaginations and wrap it in words, thoughts, equivalences. Hogue’s particular wit and intensity relay not merely the appearance of art, but the experience of it, ‘its complication of what is.’”
