Nelson-Atkins to light Christmas tree

Kansas City, Mo. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art will have its annual holiday tree-lighting ceremony from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Author to talk about Wounded Knee

William S.E. Coleman will discuss and read from his book "Voices of Wounded Knee" at 7 p.m. Friday at Borders, 700 N.H.

The book uses accounts of the Wounded Knee massacre and juxtapositions them to allow readers to decide who was telling the truth. His treatment suggests that the massacre grew out of decades of broken treaties, cultural misunderstanding, power struggles between the Department of Interior and the U.S. Army, and erroneous and inflammatory reports by irresponsible members of the press.
