About this event
Description: 
Join Jane Rohman for a free community discussion of Mari Sandoz' 1960 novel about Nebraska artist Robert Henri. The story tells of the gambler and townsite promoter who founded Cozad, Nebraska, and of his family, particularly his younger son, [who] became a world-famous artist and teacher known as 'Robert Henri.' This tale is essentially Robert's story, the story of a sensitive talented boy growing up in the midst of frontier violence. But it is also the story of the ambitious promoter and of frontier people fighting hunger, cold, blizzards, drouths, grasshoppers, prairie fires, and ruthless cattlemen. . . . Join in the conversation! Books available for purchase!
