Yankton Community Library

Jamie Sullivan will lead the Yankton Community Library’s discussion of the 2013 One Book South Dakota selection, Danielle Sosin’s The Long-Shining Waters, on Thursday, October 10, at 6:30 p.m.  Books are now available for check out at the library.

In The Long-Shining Waters, Sosin weaves an intricate tale revolving around Lake Superior and encompassing three generations of the people who lived on its shores.  The book is “haunting, rich in historical detail, and universal in its exploration of the human desire for meaning when faced with uncertainty and the indomitable power of place.”

This program is made possible with a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Books are available at the library.  For more information, contact the library at 668-5276.
