“What if everyone in South Dakota read the same book?” Since 2003, the One Book South Dakota program has encouraged everyone across South Dakota to read and discuss the same book throughout the course of a year. The 2012 selection is Dammed Indians Revisited: The Continuing History of the Pick-Sloan Plan and the Missouri River Sioux by Michael Lawson. The effects of the flooding on Native American populations caused by the dam projects are examined. Lana Dannenbring-Eichstadt, a local scholar and author, will be facilitating this discussion. The library is currently making plans to hold the discussion in early November, and books will be available soon. If you are interest in participating, please call the library to reserve a book.
