In our Native Authors Series, we are excited to showcase renowned guest presenters that introduce K-12 educators and librarians to books by Dakota and Ojibwe authors and illustrators. This regular series takes place at Perpich Center for Arts Education. Each gathering features an interview and Q&A with a special guest, provides resource lists, and offers time in the Perpich Library to peruse our extensive collection of books by Native authors. Can’t make it to Perpich Center for the “live” event? Watch our website for resources and a video recording of each interview.

On Tuesday, April 30, we are excited to welcome Anton Treuer as our guest!
