Join us at Meinders Library in Pipestone for a public viewing of the movie “Neither Wolf Nor Dog”.
Based on the 1996 Minnesota Book Award winner, Neither Wolf Nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Indian Elder, written by Kent Nerburn, the movie follows the story of two men from two distinct cultures working together to find a single voice. The journey weaves past and present, breaking down “myths and stereotypes of the Native American experience, revealing an America few ever see.”*
The movie has been shown in libraries and small theaters across the United States, to much acclaim.
To view the movie trailer, click here.
While the library will be closed August 6-11 for annual cleaning and maintenance, the doors will open for the movie screening at 6:15pm on Monday August 6. This event is free and open to the public.
Several copies of the book are still available at the library for checkout.
