We are proud to welcome members of the Tashunke Witko Tiwahe/Crazy Horse Family and author William Matson to the Book Den. Matson’s book, Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life & Legacy, is based on the family tales and memories told to the family about their famous grandfather.
This oral history differs from what has become the standard and widely accepted biography of Crazy Horse. The family clarifies the inaccuracies and shares their story about the past, including what it means to them to be Lakota, the family genealogy, the life of Crazy Horse and his motivations and death.
Join us June 25th, from 3PM to 6PM at the Book Den.
We recently bought a large collection of comics and graphic novels, including stuff that goes back a few decades. This is something Joaquin knows quite a bit about. He has just finished cataloging it and the collection is on the shelf and online.
If this interests you, come by the store or follow the link below. Better hurry, though. The books have been online for about half an hour and we already have two orders.
A Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Santa Barbara Central Library
Edited by Steven Gilbar with a foreword by T. C. Boyle.
The Friends of Santa Barbara Public Library are having a launch party on Saturday, June 10 at 7:30 PM – 9:30 PM. $50 gets you champagne, dessert, and readings by selected authors, and a copy of the book. And you get that warm, fuzzy feeling for supporting the Friends of the Library. As a former president of the Friends, I highly recommend it.
The book won’t be for sale at the library except at the event, but we have it in stock now, and will continue to keep in stock it.
