Seward Memorial Library
World War I and the Legacy of Propaganda is an upcoming program that fits nicely with June’s Chautauqua theme: World War I: Legacies of a Forgotten War. It will be presented by Dr. James J. Kimble of Seton Hall University on Thursday, June 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Seward Memorial Library. Dr. Kimble has presented several intriguing programs in past summers here, first on the metal scrap drive of WWII and two years ago he spoke about Rosie the Riveter and more. Originally from Norfolk, Nebraska, Dr. Kimble is the recipient of multiple awards and has been widely recognized for his outstanding scholarship in rhetoric and public discourse.
He has authored several books and co-edited a 2016 title: The 10¢ War: Comic Books, Propaganda, and World War II. He has also been involved with documentary films and is currently serving as guest curator and catalog editor for a major international traveling exhibition from the Norman Rockwell Museum. Please join us for what promises to be an entertaining and educational evening.
