Due to air quality concerns, this program will take place inside the library in the event rooms on June 28th.
Make a delicious sundae and then sit back and enjoy it while listening to a story! Madalene Big Bear (Bodwéwadmi) is a citizen of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Nation and a culture bearer who enjoys sharing her knowledge in many forms, including stories. Although entertaining, storytelling is also an important way to convey customs, language, history, and identity to descendants and those who are invited to listen. Come and listen.
All ages are welcome, but those twelve or under must be accompanied by an adult. If the weather is nice, this program will be out on our patio.
