Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives Collection Spotlight for November 2015

December 3, 2015

November is Native American Heritage Month and an appropriate time to acknowledge and applaud the contributions of American Indians to literature and the arts.  These four titles were taken from the extensive collection of works by Native American authors held by the library.  Currently on display in the public reading area of the library, these particular titles were chosen because each of the writers has a connection to Arizona.  Through memoir, poetry, essay and folktale, these selections display a rich tapestry of artistic expression that preserves the unique heritage of each author while enriching the collective heritage through the written word.  Please feel free to visit the library to review these or any other items of interest in the library and archives collections.  For more details or additional collection information, click on the Search Catalog link located in the pull-down menu of the library tab on the Heard website.
