Hear the Real Story of Crazy Horse at the Southwest Regional Library June 3
Go to the Southwest Regional Library this June to meet the authors of “Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life and Legacy.” This book is based on the family’s oral history of this legendary Native American figure.
Floyd Clown, family elder, will be joined by author William Matson to talk about and sign copies of the book at the Southwest Regional Library. The book is based on the oral history that has been passed down in Crazy Horse’s family since his 1877 assassination. Floyd Clown is the son of Edward Clown, who was Crazy Horse’s nephew. Floyd Clown is the keeper of the sacred bundle and pipe. He is the embodiment of a culture that has mostly been lost in modern America, a living reminder of the rich history of the Native Americans.
This meet-and-greet event will last from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. The Southwest Regional Library is a new, sprawling facility that offers 40,000 feet of space filled with more than 120,000 books and materials. There are public computers here, free WiFi and public meeting rooms. There's a special space for teens and interactive learning stations for young children in their early stages of development.
The library is at 9725 Dixie Highway in Prairie Village, a neighborhood where learning and education are the stars.
