More Book Launches, Signings and Ober's Island Film Premier in November

Minneapolis, Minnesota - Oct. 22, 2009 - It is our pleasure to announce a few book signings, a film premier and our on-going reading series for the month of November at Birchbark Books and Isles Deli, located at 2115 West 21st Street, in downtown Kenwood.

Oct. 22, 2009 at 7 p.m., Carleton professor Michael D. McNally will be on hand to discuss his new book "Honoring Elders: Aging and Authority in Ojibwe Religion." Using archival and ethnographic research McNally follows the making of Ojibwe eldership, showing that deference to older women and men is part of a fuller moral, aesthetic and cosmological vision connected to the ongoing circle of life. He will also be presenting "Art of Tradition: Sacred Music, Dance and Myth of Michigan" by Gertrude Kurath and Jane Ettawageshik, edited by McNally.

November 6, 2009 at 7 p.m., Kent Nerburn will present his latest title "The Wolf at Twilight: An Indian Elder's Journey Through a Land of Ghosts and Shadows".

November 7, 2009 at 7 p.m., Ober's Island - Living Legacy. Filmakers John Ruebartsch and Dena Aronson examine the life, times, and legacy of conservationist Ernest Oberholtzer from the vantage point of his island home on Rainy Lake in northern Minnesota. DVD will be available for purchase.


November 11, 2009 at 7 p.m.  Featuring Alison Morse, Kathryn Kysar and Emily Johnson. Hosted by Michael Kiesow Moore. This on-going series features new, emerging and established writers presenting their work on the second Wednesday of each month, September through May. A prix fixe menu available at Isles Deli, 6:30 p.m. 


November 12, 2009 at 6:30 p.m., author Patti Hoolihan will present "Launching Your Teen into Adulthood." Using this thoughtful guide, parents can help older teens confidently navigate the issues and developmental transitions that will inevitably arise as they prepare to leave home. Also available at the event will be "A Moment's Peace for Parents of Teens: 365 Reflections."


Birchbark Books is operated by a spirited collection of people who believe in the power of good writing, the beauty of hand made art, the strength of Native culture, and the importance of small and intimate bookstores. Our books are lovingly chosen. Our store is tended with care.
