If you're going to be in the Rapid City, SD area, definitely check this out!
Hosted by the Birdcage Book Store and Mercantile and the Shamus Project:
“Join us on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the Racing Magpie, 406 5th Street in downtown Rapid City for the first-ever Black Hills Indigenous writer's festival. The event is free and open to the public and runs from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.”
From the Shamus Project website:
In June of 2016 Shamus's family in partnership with Rapid City proclaimed June as “Indigenous Book Club Month” as part of a broader effort to recognize the contributions of Native writers and to commemorate the 140th anniversary of the Battle of the Greasy Grass (which is often called the Battle of the Little Bighorn or Custer's Last Stand.)
This year, 2017, we're taking the celebration a step further, sponsoring the Indigenous Writer's Festival to share the work of several prominent Native artists. Check back soon for event details and a list of books and authors who will be on hand for the event.
Please contact event organizer Lily Mendoza at [email protected] or 605-431-8231 with questions.
