Book Discussion: The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee

November 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Chester County History Center’s curator Ellen Endslow to discuss thought provoking books and connect with others in the community.

David Treuer melds history with reportage and memoir to produce a sweeping history—and counter-narrative—of Native American life from the Wounded Knee massacre to the present. The story of American Indians since the end of the 1800s to the present is one of unprecedented resourcefulness and reinvention. Tracing the tribes’ distinctive cultures from first contact, Treuer explores how the depredations of each era spawned new modes of survival. This is the essential, intimate story of a resilient people in a transformative era. – Amazon excerpt

At this point, this book discussion will be held in a HYBRID FORMAT, with both in-person meeting as well as access to the live program via Zoom. If circumstances change, and the meeting is moved to an entirely Zoom format, we will let you know.
