January 13 through March 7, the “Fact Fiction and the New World: The Role of Books in the Making of America” panel display will be open to the public in the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center.

“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 exhibition 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, a 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.

More about the exhibit can be found online.
