The continuing journey of Neither Wolf nor Dog as the One Book South Dakota selection for 2019


Here is the latest update from the South Dakota Humanities Commission.  I’ll be criss-crossing that wonderful state during the summer, speaking to groups about Neither Wolf nor Dog.  I’m really excited about this chance for Neither Wolf nor Dog to bring people together in common conversation.

Those of you who don’t know South Dakota are missing one of the most diverse, wonderful states in the country. You should give it a try.  It’s more than some carved heads on a mountain.  A lot more.  Be prepared to be surprised and delighted.

And to those of you in South Dakota, I’ll be seeing you as the year progresses.  Contact the Humanities Commission if you want to arrange a reading or a discussion.
