The Osage Tribal Museum will be hosting a book signing March 9th, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. This exciting, upcoming event features Osage author Mindy Standley of the children’s book “Frybread for Addie” and Osage illustrator C. R. Red Corn.
Standley grew up with her family participating in I’Lon-Schka. She also learned traditional cooking from her mother, Debbie Atterberry. Valuing our culture and her heritage so much, Standley used her education in broadcast journalism to interview tribal elders and explore ways to bridge the gap between generations.
Red Corn grew up in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, attending school at Indian Camp. He began drawing at age 6, and has taken his aspirations to an accomplished height as an artist and illustrator. When he is not working on a project, he volunteers at the local Veterans Affairs Hospital where he draws portraits for veterans.
“Frybread for Addie” demonstrates bringing the culture of Standley’s own grandmother to young readers and presenting the work of a local Osage artist. Come join us at the book signing as we celebrate the presentation of “Frybread for Addie”.
