The North Platte Public Library will continue its Celebrate Nebraska 150 Program series at noon on Thursday, Sept. 7. 

Author Jeff Barnes will present: A Man in a Better Place: Jesse James in Nebraska.

Barnes thoroughly researches his topics and has given excellent programs in his past visits to the library, spokeswoman Terri Johnson said.

The notorious Jesse James typically isn’t connected with Nebraska, but Nebraska was where the outlaw could find family and friends. It was where he could plan robberies, make a recovery or an escape, and even sit for his most famous photograph.

He wanted to buy a farm in Nebraska and some say he started a family here.

Barnes shares what’s known of the truth, the fiction, and the legend of Jesse James in Nebraska.

This free program is made possible by Humanities Nebraska, the Nebraska Cultural endowment and local funding as part of the HN Speakers Bureau.   

 The library asks for people to call the library at 535-8036, Ext. 3310 to reserve a space to plan seating. 

Attendees are welcome to bring a brown bag lunch. Iced tea and water will be provided.
