Fall Luncheon, Friends of Ramsey Co. Library
November 3, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Mark your calendars for the Friends’ Author Luncheon to be held Saturday, November 3, 2018, at the North Oaks Country Club. Our featured speaker this year is award-winning author and Director of Dream of Wild Health, Diane Wilson.
Diane’s first book, “Spirit Car: Journey to a Dakota Past,” retraces her family’s Dakota heritage across five generations and won a 2006 Minnesota Book Award. Her second book, “Beloved Child: A Dakota Way of Life,” explores the work of several modern Dakota people who are following the long tradition of raising beloved children and tapping into the “genius and brilliance” of Dakota culture as a way of surviving historical trauma.
Diane also contributed to the 2016 anthology, “A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota.” In this highly praised book, sixteen of Minnesota’s best writers provide a range of perspectives on what it is like to live as a person of color in Minnesota.
The Annual Author Luncheon is open to the public but Friends members and their guests receive priority reservations and a discount. All members of the Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries will receive a reservation flyer this summer, with registration opening to the public afterward.
