National Native American Heritage Month

#Books by and about Native Americans

National Native American Heritage Month acknowledges the many historical contributions and present-day achievements of America's indigenous people. This celebration also pays tribute to their rich ancestry and traditions, many of which are still observed by nations and tribes across the United States. 

We were honored earlier this year to host a Lit Chat Interview with Tommy Orange, author of There There, during Jacksonville's Celebrate Reading Week in March. His book, about the urban Native experience, was a national bestselling and Pultizer Prize finalist. In September, Angeline Boulley, the bestselling and award-winning author of Firekeeper's Daughter, joined us for a Teen Lit Chat Interview at Jax Book Fest. 

Jacksonville Public Library has an AMAZING collection of books featuring stories and information written by and about people from varied backgrounds, races, ethnicities, life experiences, and viewpoints. We love to share selections that demonstrate the range of our collection all year and we encourage you to explore these books with us this month and all year long!
