Event Details:

Join us for our newest Book Club, where we meet the author and enjoy an adult beverage with them! We meet the first Tuesday of every month at Suburban Bottle at 6:30 pm to discuss a great book with each other, the author, and a glass of wine or beer! The monthly fee includes the book for the month as well as a glass of wine or a craft beer to enjoy during the discussion.

For our meeting on January 7 we will discuss "TheOther Trail of Tears" by Mary Stockwell, Earhart Foundation Fellow at the William L. Clements Library, University of Michigan & winner of the Golden Lamp Award from the Association of Educational Publishers for Best Book. Ms. Stockwell will be joining us for our discussion!

The Story of the Longest and Largest Forced Migration of Native Americans in American History, The Indian Removal Act of 1830 was the culmination of the United States’ policy to force native populations to relocate west of the Mississippi River. The most well-known episode in the eviction of American Indians in the East was the notorious “Trail of Tears” along which Southeastern Indians were driven from their homes in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi to reservations in present-day Oklahoma. But the struggle in the South was part of a wider story that reaches back in time to the closing months of the War of 1812, back through many states—most notably Ohio—and into the lives of so many tribes, including the Delaware, Seneca, Shawnee, Ottawa, and Wyandot (Huron). They, too, were forced to depart from their homes in the Ohio Country to Kansas and Oklahoma.
