Join Lorén Spears (Narragansett/Niantic) at the Research Library to talk about Louise Erdrich’s first novel, Love Medicine. It is the first book about the Kashpaws and Lamartines whom we have gotten to know over the years. Lorén shares an indigenous perspective about Love Medicine, so if you haven’t read it yet, pick up a copy and come; if you have read it, here’s a chance to discuss it with others. Free! Call 860-396-6897 for more information or visit www.pequotmuseum.org to find out about this and other programs.
The Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) designed to restore reading to the center of American culture. Managed by Arts Midwest, The Big Read provides competitive grants to support innovative reading programs in selected communities.
Plan to visit the library again on Saturday, January 25, 1-2:30 pm, to hear Rachel Sayet (Mohegan) talk about her Master’s thesis from Harvard: Moshup: Enduring Aquinnah Wampanoag Stories.
