Description

Sarah Baker Hansen grew up in suburban Omaha. Husband Matthew, came from Red Cloud, population 1,000. In their book, “The Better Half,” they together explored the state from border to border. The book includes two dozen columns and restaurant stories, as well as dozens of other details on things to do, see, eat and drink in Nebraska. The Hansens speak about the experience of rediscovering their own home state; encouraging other Nebraskans to do the same is at the heart of their presentation. The Hansens will also talk about Nebraska’s rural-urban divide, and what can unite us.
