Main Street Weekend for September 5th
Sunday, September 5, 2021 - 5694 - Tuesday, August 31, 2021 - Thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Spirit Room will be holding a Big Read event around US Poet Laureate Joy Harjo and her book American Sunrise. We take the occasion of that announcement to share a special production about Joy Harjo that comes to us from PRX and the “Writing the Southwest” project. ~~~ Sue Balcom talks about Labor Day and the many food festivals that take place around the world at this time of year. She even talks about eating rattlesnakes. ~~~ Speaking of rattlesnakes, that’s the subject in this episode of TellTale: Dakota Folklife and Stories.
