On Thursday, February 5, the Cheyenne River Youth Project® will kick off its annual Winter Book Club in the Cokata Wiconi (“Center of Life”) teen center’s library. Youth Programs Director Tammy Eagle Hunter and Youth Programs Assistant Floyd Braun will lead club sessions through late March, also offering three milestone celebrations and a special spring field trip to Harney Peak in the Black Hills.
For the first time, participants will have two Winter Book Club programs from which to choose. In the “Education & Culture” program, the teens will read My Indian Boyhood by Luther Standing Bear. The book will be broken into chapter groupings, and at the end of each grouping, participants will write a single-page, three-paragraph essay.
