Omaha Public Libraries celebrate National Women’s History Month

As Black History Month comes to an end, National Women's History Month is now upon us. This March, the National Women's History Project has chosen "Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination: Celebrating Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics" as their annual national theme, which celebrates the lives of women across the nation whose lives have impacted the innovative field.
This year, the Omaha Public Library has some big plans to honor the remarkable women of our country.  Throughout March, selected libraries will be hosting a series of free events, exhibits and celebrations.

Willie Nelson set to perform at the Holland Center

Living legend Willie Nelson will be making a stop in Omaha for one night only on Monday, April 8 at the Holland Performing Arts Center.
I use the term "living legend" sparingly, but Nelson undoubtedly deserves the title.  He has been continually and very successfully releasing music since 1960, before even some of our parents were born.

Shakespeare on the Green to present ‘Julius Caesar,’ ‘The Comedy of Errors’

 

This summer, a great political leader will be murdered by his close associates, and a war of retribution will break out. A prisoner shall be slated for execution, and the world will go mad as four men, as two pairs of doppelgangers, are sent on the ride of their lives. And you'll get to see it all for free. This is Shakespeare on the Green, which will run from June 21 to July 8 at Elmwood Park.
