We are excited to announce that Dr. Anton Treuer, professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University and author of The Assassination of Hole in the Day, will be appearing at the Weyerhaeuser Museum on Wednesday, November 17. We’re partnering with Bookin’ It Bookstore of Little Falls, MN, on the event. Dr. Treuer will be doing a book-signing at the bookstore from 4-5 p.m.
At 6:30 he will be at the Weyerhaeuser Museum for a meet-and-greet and then will do a reading at 7 p.m. His book will available for sale at both venues during the event.
The Assassination of Hole in the Day examines the murder of Chief Hole in the Day II by a group of Ojibwe men. There’s a more complete description of the book here.
Members of the Morrison County Historical Society will have received their newsletters by now featuring an article we produced on “The Legend of Hole in the Day,” which concerns Chief Hole in the Day I. For non-members and those who want extra copies, the article is being redesigned in booklet form and will be available for sale at the event as well.
The book-signing and reading are free and open to the public, so come and bring your friends and family. We’ll even be serving treats at the museum. (Do you really need that as a bribe?)
