'The Role of Books in the Making of America' comes to campus in January

January 14, 2013

The Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center will be hosting “Fact, Fiction and the New World: The Role of Books in the Making of America” from Jan. 13 – March 7.

Center director Sarah Polak said “Fact, Fiction, and the New World” will encourage people to think about the power of stories and the lure of newly found lands.

This bilingual panel display highlights the ways in which books determined what people looked for in the New World and how they interpreted what they saw.

The exhibition is organized by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, with support from T. L. L. Temple Foundation. The exhibition is locally supported by Chadron State College and the Van Hoff Endowment.
