Description: Manchester Public Library Presents Nancy Palker, Writer
Magic and Tragic Rosebud by Nancy Palker
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 @ 6:30pm Whiton Branch Library, 100 North Main Street

It's 1973. Join a young woman from Connecticut who accepts her first nursing job with the U.S. Public Health Service and finds herself immersed in a culture very different from her own on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. Nancy Palker relives the days of unrest on the Dakota reservation punctuated by kidnapping, death threats, and shootouts between the FBI and members of the American Indian Movement. Meet unforgettable characters--the patient who jumps out of a hospital window; the man who drives cars without motors; the pilot who lands a plane at night without lights; the nurse who jiggles an electrical plug to power the hospital. No registration required. Free. Questions contact mdaiuto@manchesterct.gov or call at 860-645-0821
