One of a Kind Juried Art Show, Quickdraw and Art Fair
Book Signing & Readings- April 28th 12pm & 6pm
Free to the Public in the Entertainment Room
Part of the Fremont County Library "One County Many Voices" Book Tour
The Wind River Hotel and Casino will be hosting a book signing on April 28 where visitors can meet one of the authors of the recently released, “Arapaho Stories, Songs, and Prayers: A Bilingual Anthology.”
William J. C’Hair is co-chair of the Northern Arapaho Language and Culture Commission and has toured Wyoming promoting the book that he wrote along with fellow co-chair Alonzo Moss and Andrew Cowell who is professor and department chair of linguistics at the University of Colorado. The event is part of One County/Many Voices and C’Hair will be available to sign books at noon and 6 p.m. in the Northern Arapaho Experience Cultural Room after a short reading.
The book is a collection of Arapaho stories, songs and prayers that celebrates the rich oral tradition of the Arapaho people. Years of research and writing has resulted in a detailed reference guide that offers readers insight into the world of the Arapaho people. Earlier this year, C’Hair and Cowell signed copies of their book at the Northern Arapaho Legislative Reception that was held at Little America Hotel and Resort in Cheyenne, Wyo. Various elected officials including Governor Matt Mead attended the event and meet with the authors. Copies of the book are available the Wind River Hotel and Casino Gift Shops, 789 Smokeshop & Casino and Black Mountain Embroidery.
