Starksboro Public Library April Book Group

Katie Antos-Ketcham • kantosketcham@cvsdvt.org

When: Apr 25, 2021, 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM

For those of you following the Starksboro Public Library's monthly book group, Mt. Abe juniors Anna Doucet and Abby Johnson are back with us for April! We'll be hosting a discussion of Joy Harjo's poetry in An American Sunrise via Zoom Sunday, April 25 from 4-5:30 and we'd love to have both new folks and those who have participated before join us.

"A nationally best-selling volume of wise, powerful poetry from the first Native American Poet Laureate of the United States. In this stunning collection, Joy Harjo finds blessings in the abundance of her homeland and confronts the site where the Mvskoke people, including her own ancestors, were forcibly displaced. From her memory of her mother's death, to her beginnings in the Native rights movement, to the fresh road with her beloved, Harjo's personal life intertwines with tribal histories to create a space for renewed beginnings" (from Google Books).

Catherine and Lynn said to let them know if you'd like to reserve a copy. You can reach them by calling 453-3732 or by emailing starksboropl@comcast.net. The library is open to one person or household group at a time on Mondays from 10:00 - 6:00, Thursdays from 10:00 - 5:00, and Saturdays 9:00 - 2:00 and curbside pick-up is also available.

Thanks, everyone!
