Series of free events begins Oct. 5, continues to Nov. 1

    This fall, the Lake Agassiz Regional Library system, which includes the Crookston branch, is presenting a series of authors, musicians and entertainers as part of its “Arts and Cultural Heritage Series.”

    It gets underway at the Crookston Library on Thursday, Oct. 5, when “Dream of Owls,” a puppet show featuring the “In the Heart of the Beast Puppet Theatre” performs at 10:30 a.m.

    Next up, food enthusiasts are invited to discover real food – the indigenous American fruits and vegetables, the wild and foraged ingredients, game, and fish familiar to Native Americans in our area – on Wednesday, Oct. 11 at 1:30 p.m., when Sean Sherman, the Oglala Lakota chef and founder of the Sioux Chef, will describe wild foods, how they’re processed, and how they’re used by the indigenous community. October’s events continue at the Crookston Library on Friday, Oct. 20 at 11 a.m., when the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet will play.

    The series will conclude on Wednesday, Nov. 1, with “Invisible Asians” author Kim Park Nelson visiting the library to share the stories of more than 60 Korean-American adoptees.

     These events are brought to the community free of charge through funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
