Native Literature Day

August 17, 2018

The Chickasaw Cultural Center will host Native Literature Day, Friday, Aug. 17, from 1-4 p.m. in the Anoli' Theater.

Native Literature Day will honor Native American authors and focus on the cultural influence of their works.

The event will highlight the importance of Native American literature and oral traditions. Authors will read works of their choosing. Each speaker will give an introduction discussing the meaning behind what they are sharing.

The Chickasaw Press will have a booth set up that afternoon showcasing works by Native authors. There will be a short Q&A session along with closing comments.
