East Carolina University’s “Big Read-Greenville” Event to screen “Searching for Sequoyah”

February 25 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Tribal communities help to launch reading program in N.C.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Members of three American Indian tribes came to Greenville on Feb. 15 to celebrate the launch of a community reading program that focuses on the writing of the nation’s first Native American poet laureate.

Representatives of the Lumbee, Haliwa-Saponi and Waccamaw-Siouan tribes were part of East Carolina University’s kickoff celebration for the National Endowment for the Arts program, Big Read-Greenville. The six-week shared reading experience, which will focus on Joy Harjo’s best-selling poetry collection “An American Sunrise,” is designed to spark conversation and establish connections within the community.

The next event scheduled as part of Big Read-Greenville is a film screening of “Searching for Sequoyah,” featuring author and filmmaker Leanne Howe (Choctaw) and a community panel and Q&A, from 6-8:30 p.m. Feb. 25 at the Greenville Museum of Art, 802 Evans St. A full schedule of events can be found at english.ecu.edu/bigread/events.
