Blackduck Library News

Anne Dunn, Annishinabe elder and storyteller, will present a family story program at the Blackduck Community Library Dec. 18 starting at 10:30 a.m.

Dunn grew up in northern Minnesota. As a young girl, she received many gifts from the wonderful storehouse of oral legends and animal fables of the Ojibwe, especially from her mother, Maefred Vanos Arey, and her grandmother, Frances Vanoss.

She is the author of When Beaver Was Great, Grandmother's Gift and Winter Thunder: Retold Tales.

Dunn has walked many paths as a longtime advocate of protecting our natural resources and improving the way we educate our children. A professional storyteller, Dunn currently lives in Deer River.

Dunn's storytelling visit is a part of the Kitchigami Legacy Storytelling Project, with funding provided by the state of Minnesota Library Legacy project.

As with all of the Library Legacy programming, everyone is welcome to attend this program and there will be no charge.

Sleigh rides will be available after the program!
