|UND Indian Association offers Time-Out Week book discussion|
The UND Indian Association has been selected by the North Dakota Humanities Council to host a North Dakota Reads book discussion on "The Grass Dancer" by Susan Power at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore Monday, April 16, at 4 p.m. Birgit Hans, professor and chair of Indian Studies, will facilitate the discussion. This session is offered as part of the 38th annual UNDIA Time-Out Week.
The purpose of the North Dakota Humanities Council book discussions is to cultivate public conversation on deeply engaging topics within the humanities, including diversity and tolerance, ethics and integrity, civil liberties and civil rights, globalization, and the role of faith in people’s lives. Discussions provide an open, non-threatening forum for talking about issues presented through the medium of literature.
Participation is free and open to the public. Multiple copies of "The Grass Dancer" are available for check out from the Chester Fritz Library at the access services desk and at the Grand Forks Public Library. Books are also being sold at Barnes & Noble.
The program is sponsored by the UND Indian Association and is funded by the North Dakota Humanities Council, a nonprofit, independent state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information about the book discussion, contact Dawn Botsford at 777-6393. For more details about the 38th annual UNDIA Time-Out Week and Wacipi, go to www.und.edu/org/undia.
