Join Legler Regional Library in celebrating Native American Heritage Month as we discuss A Rain of Night Birds
by Deena Metzger. We will also learn about the library's historic mural “Wilderness, Winter River Scene” by Midwestern artist R. Fayerweather Babcock.
Perhaps never before in the history of humankind has the disparity between Indigenous mind and Western mind been more on the pulse of what we must pay attention to in order to insure our survival. Deena Metzger has written a novel in which two people, who are from each side of this polarity, begin a loving relationship. Sandra Birdswell is a student of climatology with an uncanny ability to sense weather events. She first meets Terrence, a Native man and a professor of climatology, at her university classes. Years later, they are drawn together by the powerful forces of their love, for the Earth, for each other, and their mutual need to seek out the broken links of their family histories.
