Barnes & Noble: Authors’ event March 28, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in Millbury
Larry Spotted Crow Mann, a member of the Nipmuc Tribe of Webster, will participate in an Authors’ Event at the Barnes & Noble bookstore at the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley in Millbury on Saturday evening, March 28 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Larry will discuss his novel “The Mourning Road to Thanksgiving,” published last year to popular acclaim.
The book is a tale of a Native American man haunted by his childhood and captures his experience of living in the contemporary world while staying grounded in the history and culture of the past. Though “The Mourning Road to Thanksgiving” recounts the Native American experience, the journey is applicable to the self-actualization of all ethnic and minority groups. It has been the top-selling retail and wholesale book for Word Branch Publications since its release six months ago and has become a cultural resource for students and teachers. “The book embodies the ambiguity we face of life in America,” he says, “and deals with universal healing.”
Larry Spotted Crow Mann is a writer, poet, cultural educator, traditional story teller, tribal drummer/dancer, and motivational speaker, traveling nationally and internationally. He focuses especially on substance abuse and is working with state agencies to develop programs to support youth sobriety.
