The Walla Walla Public Library theme for November is Native American Heritage Month.
This week’s adult feature is fiction, “Monkey Beach," by Eden Robinson.
"In her debut novel, Eden Robinson, a young First Nations woman who grew up in Haisla territory near Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada, does not wring her hands or cast blame. This is a candid and contemporary tale of family love and societal screw-ups and she simply acknowledges the reality of an unfolding universe." — Remezcla
The youth selection is a fiction picture book, “Fry Bread: A Native American Family Story," by Kevin Noble Maillard.
"The book celebrates fry bread and much more. Maillard and Martinez-Neal bring depth, detail and whimsy to this Native American food story, with text and illustrations depicting the diversity of indigenous peoples, the role of continuity between generations, and the adaptation over time of people, place, and tradition. Ages 3-6." — Booklist
