VERMILLION — Join the staff at the Vermillion Public Library to discuss the 2019 One Book South Dakota, “Neither Wolf nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Indian Elder” by Kent Nerburn. The book discussion will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 30, in the Vermillion Public Library Kozak Room.

In this 1996 Minnesota Book Award winner, the reader is drawn deep into the world of an Indian elder known only as Dan. It’s a world of Indian towns, white roadside cafes, and abandoned roads that swirl with the memories of the Ghost Dance and Sitting Bull. Readers meet vivid characters like Jumbo, the 400-pound mechanic, and Annie, an 80-year-old Lakota woman living in a log cabin. Threading through the book is the story of two men struggling to find a common voice. “Neither Wolf nor Dog” takes readers to the heart of the Native American experience.

Copies are available for checkout at the Vermillion Public Library.

This program was made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street, Vermillion. For more information, email vplstaff@vermillionpubliclibrary.org or call 605-677-7060.
