This will be a wonderful presentation by Larry Spotted Crow Mann to celebrate Native American Month. Mr. Mann is an award-winning writer/poet, performer, Nipmuc cultural educator, storyteller and citizen of the Nipmuc Tribe. He travels from his home in Western Massachusetts throughout the United States, Canada, and part of Europe, to schools, colleges, Pow Wows, and other organizations sharing the music, culture, and history of Nipmuc people. In 2010, his poetry won a competition in the Memescapes Journal of Fine Arts. In 2013, his poetry was nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Mann’s Tales from the Whispering Basket is an internationally-acclaimed and compelling collection of short stories and poetry that has received excellent reviews. His ground-breaking novel, The Mourning Road to Thanksgiving, won the 2015 WordCraft Circle of Native American Writers Award. He hs also worked in collaboration with the Massachusett Department of Public Health to fight substance abuse. Please join him to learn more about Native American history, music, literature and more in this compelling event. The program is suitable for all ages and is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
