The German American Heritage Center presents local educator Bruce Bufe in the first of a series on personal family immigration histories called “My German Story.” This program features the life and times of Franz Gustav Bufe, a German immigrant cigar maker in Moline in the l880’s. He was also an artist, a poet, and a keen social critic of his time. Come experience his poems in translation and explore the themes and views of a common man with an uncommon talent for self-expression. This program is re-scheduled from a spring emergency cancellation.
Members free; public welcome with $5.00 admission; includes museum exhibits.
