Mari Sandoz Symposium Panel Discussion
Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 5:30pm to 7:00pm Central Time / 4:30pm to 6:00pm Mountain Time
Come explore who we are and where we come from. The journey will be guided by four Nebraskans discussing the major groups who settled Sandoz Country, including but not limited to: the Latina/os; Volga Deutsch; Japanese; Irish; Blacks and Native Americans. You’ll learn how the traditions they brought to the area have shaped the rich cultural tapestry we enjoy today. This will be a 90-minute online event.
A link to each webinar will be provided to registrants prior to the event. If you have any questions, please contact the Mari Sandoz Heritage Society at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lecturer, Panelist, and Moderator Books & Publications
Because the Pilster Lecture and Sandoz Symposium have had to be done virtually this year, we are not able to host one of our favorite activities, the lecturer and speaker book-signings. We encourage you to purchase the books and other publications by our lecturer and symposium panelists, as well as our moderators and through your favorite independent bookseller.
Help us promote the virtual lecture and symposium! Download the poster then share with colleagues and friends.
