Sturgis Area Arts Council - Event Details

One Book South Dakota Discussion
Tuesday, September 24
Sturgis Public Library's Community Room

Sturgis Area Arts Council is pleased to announce the opportunity to discuss the SD Humanities Council's One Book SD for 2019, "Neither Wolf Nor Dog". Scholar Molly Barari will lead the discussion on Tuesday, September 24th, at 7:00pm in the newly remodeled community room of the Sturgis Public Library. Books will be available for loan at the library.

Neither Wolf Nor Dog - On Forgotten Roads With an Indian Elder, written by Kent Nerburn, tells the story of two Native men and one non-Native man on a mission to understand one another. Nerburn hopes that readers will learn something of our complex and difficult intertwined histories and reflect on what it means to go forward as common children of this common land. The book was made into a feature film in 2016.

Born and raised near Minneapolis, Nerburn earned a bachelor's degree at the University of Minnesota in American Studies. After studying humanities and religion at Stanford University, he earned his doctorate in religious studies and art at the University of California at Berkeley.

Molly Barari, a freelance writer and marketing consultant, has an MFA in Creative Writing from Wilkes University. She is a scholar for the SD Humanities Council, serving the Sturgis Community for the past three years.

This program is made possible by a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is sponsored locally by the Sturgis Public Library and the Sturgis Area Arts Council.
