Calendar of Events

June programming event at The Bookworm (new location)
If you've ever watched The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, you probably know about Lincee Ray. She writes hilarious recaps of the show on her blog, which is how she got noticed by EW.com. She now recaps that show and others for the pop culture website (she's basically BFF with Chris Harrison, too). 
 
In fact, when she talks to us on Tuesday, June 5, she will have recapped the second episode of latest season of The Bachelorette the night before!
 
But before all of these roses, hot tubs and champagne flutes, she worked in PR for many years. Join us for this very special edition of PRSA Nebraska's monthly programs, as Lincee gives us insight into her writing process, how she found her voice, what it's like transitioning from PR to being a full-time author...and maybe some behind-the-scenes Bachelor/Bachelorette juiciness.

Join PRSA Nebraska for its June programming event at The Bookworm with author and blogger Lincee Ray, who offers her perspective on how to navigate the world of public relations and how she found her voice in the most unlikely of places.

Lincee Ray is an accidental blogger who now writes for EW.com and the Associated Press. An active speaker, she can be found at her popular website ihategreenbeans.com where she makes it clear that she believes it’s important to tell your story — even if it makes you seem a little crazy. Her first book, Why I Hate Green Beans, debuted in February 2018.

Prior to Lincee's talk, enjoy a boxed lunch from Market Basket and network with fellow PR and communications colleagues. A book signing will take place after a Q&A. 

The first 50 individuals to register will receive a copy of Lincee's book, so register today!

Noon - 12:45 p.m.  Lincee Ray
12:45 - 1 p.m.  Q&A
1 p.m.  Book Signing
