Have you read, “Neither Wolf nor Dog” by Kent Nerburn? This novel has won several awards and is considered to successfully bridge the gap between white America and the Native American world. The American Indian College fund said, “This is one of those rare works that once you’ve read it, you can never look at the world, or at people, the same way again.” The library has books for you to borrow and then on Monday, June 3 we will hold a discussion of the book and show the film, starring Elder Dave Bald Eagle at 6 p.m.; dinner will be provided! Plan to take part in this book and movie discussion.

A new novel is “Highland Peace” by Rachel Leone Gibson, a third grade teacher at the Lingle/Ft. Laramie School.

She decides to visit the highlands of Scotland, but tragedy and death have followed her to Glen Orchy, home of the Castle Equestrian Stable. Will she ever find peace again?
