What We’re Reading

While we’re busy this summer helping people with their requests for information, photographs, and recommendations for reading lists, we have been doing a little reading ourselves. Smoke Signals: A Screenplay, written by Sherman Alexie, is on our list because Betsy Theobald Richards (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma) is leading a discussion of it on November 19, 2011. The book is proving hard-to-find, but we hope to get some reading copies; however, the film, Smoke Signals, is available and it’s so good that we’re showing it here after the discussion.

The weekly newspaper, Indian Country Today, has a new magazine format which is easy to read and is very attractive, too. We subscribe to This Week from Indian Country Today: The Premier Newsmagazine Serving the Nations, Celebrating the People, and read it, especially the book reviews. Take a look at a copy the next time you visit the libraries.
