Past Bureau County Republican Editor Terri Simon is remembered through a donation from Voices From the Prairie to the Princeton Public Library. Voices from the Prairie is a grassroots citizens’ movement committed to promoting open, ethical, and fair governance, and upholding the values of tolerance, fairness, and inclusion in American society and political life. Terri worked with members of Voices From the Prairie to publish their events, and served on their press panel in 2017.
Voices From The Prairie donated books to the Princeton and Sheffield libraries in memory of Terri Simon. Terri had a long career in our local communities with the Bureau County Republican and was a strong advocate for the First Amendment, a supporter of women in journalism, and held a strong commitment of community involvement. Voices wanted to honor her in a way that supported her convictions and her commitments. Teri will long be missed in our communities.
As an expression of thanks, the group has donated six books to the library in her memory. They are: The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White; The New Journalism by Tom Wolf; Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldber; Unbelievable: my front-row seat to the craziest campaign in American History, by Katy Tur; The Soul of the First Amendment by Floyd Abramsp; and Bylines: a photobiography of Nellie Bly by Sue Macy.
The Princeton Public Library appreciates Voices From the Prairie’s generosity in honoring Terri Simon.
