Nebraska Public Media (NPM), previously known as Nebraska Educational Telecommunications or NET, is a network of PBS and NPR-affiliated stations. Both OLLI and Nebraska Public Media are interested in lifelong learning by providing diverse, stimulating, and in-depth programming. As an OLLI member you already know what makes OLLI tick, but do you really know that much about Nebraska Public Media? A tour of the facility and conversation with its senior leaders will define what NPM’s role is in the state and nation and what it takes to make operations run smoothly. Be prepared to see a freshly renovated lobby and meeting and events room. If not on assignment, the mobile media studio will be available, too.
Shakespreare's First Folio was published in 1623, seven years after his death. Some of his friends were afraid his plays would be lost without this collection: 750 were printed, and about 220 still exist. Recently, one sold at auction for more than $2,000,000. Learn how the Folio came to be part of the UNL Special Collections and why this book has such an important place in English literature and history. We will also have an opportunity for an up close and personal look at the fully restored First Folio (complete with wine stains and notations in the margins), as well as a short performance of a scene from one of Shakespeare’s plays by UNL students.
The older we get, the more stories we have. Sometimes we remember every detail like it was yesterday, and other times we only remember bits and pieces. Often, when we are invited to spend time with memory, details begin to reemerge. We will focus on sharing reminiscences. You will practice the key storytelling elements of telling and listening, as we focus on shaping and sharing memories. We want to inspire you to write down your stories. Stories are the riches that convey culture, history and values that unite us.
