NC Reads… Even As We Breathe by Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle
April 27, 2022 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The Wake Forest Historical Museum is excited to announce that it will be part of North Carolina Humanities’ statewide book club for 2022. We will join libraries, museums, and individuals across the state in reading books that explore issues of racial, social, and gender equality and the history and culture of North Carolina.
On Wednesday, April 27 at 5:30 pm, we’ll meet at the Museum to discuss Even as We Breath by Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle. At 6:30 pm, we’ll join people across the state in streaming a conversation with the book’s author and Dr. Trey Adcock, Director of American Indian & Indigenous Studies at the University of North Carolina Asheville. This is a great chance to meet new people who share your interest in the history and culture of North Carolina!
Historical Fiction. Nineteen-year-old Cowney Sequoyah yearns to escape his hometown of Cherokee, North Carolina, in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. When a summer job at Asheville’s luxurious Grove Park Inn and Resort brings him one step closer to escaping the hills that both cradle and suffocate him, he sees it as an opportunity.
A limited number of free books are available to participants. When registering please note if you would like to be considered for one of these books. Books can also be found at our local bookstore, Page158 Books, or at your local library.
