The UMD Library will host a "Meet The Author" event December 3 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. in the UMD fourth floor library rotunda. Anishinaabe poet Denise Sweet will be the featured author.
The title of Sweet's presentation will be "Who We Are - What Is Ours". She will read from her work and create a dialogue with participants about "the importance of the oral repositories of communities". A book signing will follow Sweet's presentation.
