About the Book

What happened to art? Art is everywhere, yet in our current lives it seems to have slipped through the cracks of what has been deemed progress.
The perception of a void Nebraska provides its residents the uncommon chance to be part of a community that is self-defined and unaffiliated with outside surveillance. It frees them, letting the individual be whoever they want, and gives them the open eyed chance to write about the world from what seems like the middle of nowhere and find peace in that.
Though it may appear to be trapped in a cultural stand still; it is not. The reality of this place is one filled with vast artistic voices that penetrate to the core. This book explores a sense of truth from Lincolnites and gives its authors the opportunity to show off their capabilities in translating reality. These are Human minds making a valiant attempt at understanding their environment (nature/the world around them/the people in it). It produces a machine gun of thoughtful words and ideals that stimulate the mind.
People who emancipate themselves from the chains of expectation in our society, or any society, put an emphasis on the human spirit once more. It happens everywhere and it happens every single day. This is something which can become easily overlooked, it is about the importance of coming to terms with an understanding of our time, with the people in our time. This book presents ideas, from authors who resonate their own clarity separate from Nebraska's perceived archaic inheritance.
the (lincoln) zoo challenges any reader to find themselves by stepping outside the falsification of definition, to be heard in the silence. We are an echo of the longing to be ourselves without consequence.

We're setting the zoo free.
