Nebraska native Alison Johnson will read passages from her memoir, The Eleventh Hour Can’t Last Forever, at the Kearney Public Library on Thursday, June 18 at noon (12:00 p.m.) in the Norman Room. Her memoir of growing up in Palisade, Nebraska revolves around her father, who collected two tons of gold and silver coins because he feared the economy was going to collapse. To complicate his children’s eventual treasure hunt, he left no map or list of where he buried the treasure. Unfortunately, he also failed to see how his collecting impacted his entire family. Warren Buffett offers this cover endorsement, “In a sad way I enjoyed reading the account of your life and that of your father. It’s a saga relating how an obsession with money can really mess up a family.”
This program is free and will take place at the Kearney Public Library, 2020 First Avenue, Kearney, NE. For information call 308-233-3283.
