Coming soon to NET: Lost Writers of the Plains
“Lost Writers of the Plains,” a public radio series, website and ibook, highlights writers who achieved “fame," but who have become lost to modern readers. In some instances, the author is unknown today, but enjoyed great success in his or her time; others did not reach their potential for a variety of social circumstances—family, scandal, the limitations of contemporary racial or gender roles, or plain chance. But their work, and the reasons behind its disappearance, remain compelling today.
In collaboration with Nebraska Educational Telecommunications (NET), eight on-air essays airing in February will bring interesting new (old!) authors to listeners, and offer a historical perspective on why their writing, careers, or Plains connection has been forgotten.
