October is NEA Big Read / Read Across Lawrence Month for Adults

The Round House by Louise Erdrich, our adult Read Across Lawrence pick for 2020, fearlessly explores the difficult topic of sexual assault as well as other issues related specifically to Native women and peoples. We pulled together this Round House reading list of nonfiction and fiction that looks at themes of violence against women, bigotry, and the experiences and traditions of Native peoples in North America to accompany our Round House-related events all month.

Kanopy Kids helps parents and guardians enhance distance-learning with streaming movies, TV series, animated storybooks, live action, and animated favorites for Pre-K and up.
