Todd Robinson was raised in Omaha and on a farm on the Keya Paha River. He “has spent nine months of every year of his conscious life a classroom because nothing frees and inspires him quite like learning does.” Todd is a very engaging teacher in the Writer’s Workshop and the Thompson Learning Community at University of Nebraska at Omaha.
A pseudo-memoir about the struggle of a young man to escape the inheritance of the shattered hopes, dreams, and lives of his parents. The young man roams New York City, self-cannibalizing with alcohol and sex until he escapes the city to impossibly collide with his dead father on the great American highway.
A native of central Oklahoma, Travis holds degrees in history from Creighton University (BA, 1995) and the University of Nebraska at Omaha (MA, 1998). He has worked in various capacities within the history field in both Nebraska and Maine as a consultant, educator, site manager, and library/archives director. Sing appeared in the 2013 NET documentary “Devil Clouds: Tornadoes Strike Nebraska.” He is also the author of “Creighton University Athletics: A History in Photographs.”
Travis is a songwriter/musician who has earned eight Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards (OEAAs), and has toured with legend Dwight Yoakam. Sing recently was conferred a degree in graphic design from Metropolitan Community College. While a student, he won Best of Show at the MCC Student Art Exhibition in 2018, and earned a Bronze Award from American Institute for Graphic Arts (AIGA) for a poster produced while an intern at Hatch Show Print in Nashville, TN.
Lolly Anderson Thomas
As a child, Lolly was often praised for her wild imagination and creativity! This fueled her graphic arts and writing career. In 2010, she expressed her creativity in a new way; she wrote and illustrated a whimsical fantasy chapter book Tiggle Trouble: A monster’s Birthday Adventure.
Tiggle Trouble takes place on Rotalot Island. Here, strong-willed Monster Muckabee spends his birthday learning some very hard lessons about bullies, saving, sharing, and problem solving.
Lolly’s illustrations bring her book to life, and the glossary just might expand the reader’s vocabulary! Her book was self-published in 2015.
Two Birds Bakery
Trilety Wade & Megan Thomas
Two Birds Bakery (Trilety Wade and Megan Thomas) previously filled the MoonRise space with the scent of fresh pastries (clearly one of the world’s greatest wonders) and visually artistic cakes, pies, and cookies. Two Birds developed their own vegan and gluten free recipes which further defined the local culinary culture. Even though the Bakery is now only in our memory bank, their cookbook keeps the aromas and tastes of Two Birds in the Now.
