Wilson Museum-Inspired Book Discussion: Warrior Girl Unearthed

Wilson Museum-Inspired Book Discussion: Warrior Girl Unearthed
4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Wilson Museum, Hutchins Education Center
112 Perkins Street, Castine, Maine, 04421, Hancock County

The Wilson Museum is excited to be trying something new this year – a Wilson Museum-inspired book discussion series! The discussions will be offered both in-person and on Zoom.

The first book in the series is Warrior Girl Unearthed by Angeline Boulley (Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians). In this novel, Boulley tells the story of Perry Firekeeper-Birch, an Anishinaabe girl who is tackling both the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women and the role that museums and collectors have played in taking Indigenous ancestors and their belongings out of the community. Warrior Girl Unearthed offers a powerful way to frame the repatriation and decolonization work that the Wilson Museum is undertaking.

Books can be purchased at Compass Rose Books or borrowed through Witherle Memorial Library. The discussions are free, but please register with the museum so that the folks at Compass Rose know how many books to order!
