Sámi-American author Ellen Marie Jensen is coming back to the Pacific Northwest for three events. If you haven’t met Ellen yet, don’t miss this opportunity! Her book events last summer were not only informative and fun, but sparked lively Q&A sessions and several friendships. On this tour, Ellen will be presenting her book, We Stopped Forgetting: Stories of Sámi Americans (now available in softcover), as well as the new English translation of Johan Turi’s An Account of the Sámi.
Both books are must-haves. They are also popular, so get them while you can. Ellen sold out of We Stopped Forgetting on her last tour, and Thomas DuBois (the translator of Turi’s book) sold out of An Account of the Sámi on his last visit to Seattle.
Ellen’s events are:
- Tuesday, Jan. 8th, 11:30 pm, Poulsbo Historical Society, Poulsbo www.poulsbohistory.org
- Thursday, Jan. 10th, at 6:00 pm, Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma http://www.plu.edu/scan/
- Friday, Jan. 11 at 7:30 pm, Portland State University, Portland, sponsored by www.scanheritage.org
(Find more information at the We Stopped Forgetting Facebook Page.)
