Meet the Author-Joan Tavares Avant

People of the First Light
Saturday, March 31, 2012, 11 am to noon

Join us in welcoming Mashpee Wampanoag elder, Joan Tavares Avant, known as Granny Squannit, to the Research Library. Talking about her book-a collection of history, stories, recipes, newspaper articles, and more, she makes the stories come alive. We think it’s always a privilege to be able to sit down and talk with an author and this is a rare opportunity to spend time with Granny Squannit and hear her stories. If you love Cape Cod, and you want to learn about the first people who have lived there for years and years, you should come. Copies of her book will be available for purchase. Meet the Author is a free program; please use the Group Entrance in the middle of the building.
