Death Zones & Darling Spies: Seven Years of Vietnam War Reporting,
by Beverly Deepe Keever
Death Zones & Darling Spies: Seven Years of Vietnam War Reporting
by Beverly Deepe Keever is Nebraska's choice for the 2015
One Book One Nebraska statewide reading program. In this book, Beverly
Deepe Keever describes what it was like for a farm girl from Nebraska to
find herself halfway around the world, trying to make sense of one of
the nation's bloodiest and bitterest wars.
One Book One Nebraska reading program
is entering its tenth year. It encourages Nebraskans across the state to read and discuss one book, chosen from books written by Nebraska authors or that have a Nebraska theme or
setting. A committee of the Nebraska Center for the Book selected
seven finalists from a list of twenty-five titles nominated by
twenty-nine Nebraskans. The Nebraska Center for the Book board announced the choice
for the 2015 One Book One Nebraska at the Celebration of Nebraska Books
on November 8, 2014, in Lincoln.
Libraries across Nebraska will join other literary and cultural
organizations in planning book discussions, activities, and events that
will encourage Nebraskans to read and discuss this book. Support
materials to assist with local reading/discussion activities are
available at http://onebook.nebraska.gov/get-involved.aspx. Updates and activity listings
are posted on the One Book One Nebraska Facebook group at
One Book One Nebraska is sponsored by
Nebraska Center for the Book,
Nebraska Library Commission.
The Nebraska Center for the Book is housed at and supported
by the Nebraska Library Commission and brings together the state's
readers, writers, booksellers, librarians, publishers, printers,
educators, and scholars to build the community of the book, supporting
programs to celebrate and stimulate public interest in books, reading,
and the written word.
