[ARCHIVED] “No Time on My Hands: The Story of Grace Snyder” presented by Charlotte Endorf

Grace Belle McCance Snyder (002)

Join us Thursday, November 21 at 7:00 p.m. as the Kearney Public Library welcomes Humanities speaker Charlotte Endorf to share the story of Grace Snyder. Grace Snyder was born April 23, 1882 and lived to be 100. She moved to Nebraska with her parents from Missouri when she was only three. Grace had three wishes and dreamed three dreams. 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. At the time, it seemed impossible that any of her dreams could ever 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.

This presentation is made possible by Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment and Kearney Public Library as part of the HN Speakers Bureau. This program is free and open to the public.  The Kearney Public Library is located at 2020 1st Avenue Kearney, NE.
