Meet Earl Mills, Sr.

Wednesday, August 8
Book Talk 11 am-12 noon
Luncheon 12-1 pm

We’re getting excited about the next Meet the Author program here in the library. Earl Mills, Sr. (Mashpee Wampanoag), author of Cape Cod Wampanoag Cookbook is visiting us on August 8 to chat about the cookbook (he says don’t try the Indian Pudding recipe-it’s not right, but he’ll bring a better one) and his other books, including Son of Mashpee.  Meet him between 11 and 12 noon; stay for a delicious lunch of foods from his cookbook. Book discussion is free. Lunch is $30/20 Museum members. Call (800) 411-9671 or email by Aug. 3 to register. 

Earl Mills Sr., Chief Flying Eagle, has lived in Mashpee since his birth, with the exception of time spent in the Army and pursuing his education at Arnold College in Connecticut. He has been Chief of the Mashpee Wampanoags since 1956, has organized many powwows and was the driving force behind the renovation of the Old Indian Meeting House, one of the most significant historic landmarks on Cape Cod. Mr. Mills has also made his mark on the Cape as a devoted teacher of physical education and most recently as the founder of The Flume, a well-known Mashpee restaurant. This book [Son of Mashpee] came about because "there is a great need in me to share with others that which I remember and that which I know about Mashpee."
