Come in and Celebrate Native American Heritage Month!

In 1990, President George H.W. Bush declared the month of November National American Indian Heritage Month (now commonly referred to as Native American Heritage Month). Decades earlier, the first American Indian Day was celebrated in May 1916 in New York through the effort of Red Fox James. He had ridden his horse throughout the country to appeal to 24 state governments to honor this day. We now have 6.9 million American Indian or Alaskan Natives amongst the U.S. population and there are 574 federally recognized Native tribes.

All November long is Native American Heritage Month! Come in and check out our selection of fiction and nonfiction titles by authors from Native backgrounds, novels championing Native American stories, and historical accounts. Check out books by Sherman Alexie, Louise Erdrich and Tommy Orange.

Looking for other ways to celebrate? Make a Native American recipe, like fry bread or three sisters soup. Visit a Native American heritage site such as the Shinnecock Nation Cultural Center and Museum, Garvies Point Museum & Preserve or the Southold Indian Museum. Let us know how you plan to celebrate!

I decided to kill off a few characters in the book I’m writing. It would definitely spice up my autobiography a little.

Ulysses Tapley Discusses the 1972 Chess Match Fischer vs. Spassky

THE CHESS MATCH OF THE CENTURY BOBBY FISCHER VS BORIS SPASSKY
A Zoom presentation with Ulysses Tapley presented in part by The Rogers Memorial Library, and East End Libraries will be held on October 19, 2020 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm.

In 1972, when Bobby Fischer challenged Boris Spassky, the Russian world champion, the headlines it generated competed with the Watergate scandal and Vietnam. Fisher was only thirteen years old at the time when the “Game of the Century” was played.  The media publicized this match as a Cold War confrontation between the US and USSR. It attracted more worldwide interest than any chess championship before or since. Join chess instructor Ulysses Tapley for commentary about that historic game.

Register at Eventbrite or call (631) 324-0222 ext. 3 or email reference@easthamptonlibrary.org
A Zoom link will be sent out 15 minutes before the event to all who register.
