Join us for a Zoom meeting with Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle, the first enrolled member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to publish a novel. Saunooke Clapsaddle will speak about how the Federal Indian Policy influenced literature and how she hopes to dispel some stereotypes and myths about Cherokee people through her work.
Her debut novel Even as We Breathe (September 2020) received a Publishers Weekly Starred Review. Even as We Breathe uses the secluded microcosm of Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC during the summer of 1942 to tackle the complexities of race relations, familial identity, and citizenship for Cherokees.
Online Story Time Mondays, 10:00 a.m. Families are invited to join us each week for a live story time with our Children's librarians. Recorded sessions are available on the City of Hickory YouTube page.
