Humanities Nebraska Speakers

Saturday, October 9, noon: Nebraska Humanities program: Charlotte and Kevin Endorf, "No Time on My Hands." The story of Grace Snyder who was born April 23, 1882 and lived to be 100. She moved to Nebraska with her parents from Missouri when she was only three. To grow up to make the most beautiful quilts in the world; to grow up and marry a cowboy and to look down on the top of a cloud were her dreams. At the time, it seemed impossible that any of these dreams could come true. Kevin and Charlotte Endorf share Snyder's life story after countless hours of study. Enjoy the display Kevin and Charlotte have compiled of this woman clearly ahead of her time.
