Kent Nerburn, the author of this year's Reading in Common book, The Wolf at Twilight, gave a free public lecture as part of the Reading in Common program at Gustavus. Nerburn was joined by the Native American father and son tandem of Raymond and Martin Sensmeier, who shared their experiences and insight as members of the Tlingit Tribe of Yakatut, Alaska.
Nerburn is the author of 12 books on spirituality and Native themes, including Chief Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Perce, Simple Truths, and The Wisdom of the Native Americans. He was born and raised near Minneapolis, but now resides in Northern Minnesota.
2011 marks the 12th year of the Reading in Common program at Gustavus. All first-year students are expected to read the chosen book during the summer and then meet with faculty members and upperclass students during New Student Orientation to discuss it. The Wolf at Twilight was also selected as the fall read for the community organization St. Peter Reads. Community members from the St. Peter area were invited to participate in this Reading in Common Author event.
