News from the American Indian Library Association

The Winter 2009 newsletter of the American Indian Library Association is out. I want to share some of it with you...

Chief Joseph Medicine Crow, author of Counting Coup: Becoming a Crow Chief on the Reservation and Beyond, was awarded the U.S. Bronze Star and the French Legion of Honor on June 25, 2008. Also in June, he was nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Naomi Caldwell, chair of their Youth Literature Awards committee said that Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian will be coming out in paperback, and that its publisher (Little, Brown and Company) will provide free copies to every tribal library in the United States.

I was wondering if you have an RSS feed for this blog (I can't find one)--especially if there's one for Livejournal (I am not very good at remembering to check non-LJ blogs regularly).

I read an embarrassingly number of Naya Nuki sorts of books as a kid, so it's really interesting to read critiques of them.

Hi M,

Look way down at the bottom of the page, right side. Is that what you're looking for? I just moved them down there from higher up in the page.
