Author Chag Lowry to Talk About Yurok WWI Book at Multiple Events

Lowry, whose book tells the story of three young Yurok men drafted to serve in World War I, will be speaking at Humboldt State University at 1:30 p.m. Friday in room 162 the Behavioral and Social Sciences Building before a presentation and book signing at Northtown Books in Arcata at 7 p.m.

Then, on Saturday, Lowry will be speaking briefly at a screening of the film Wounded Knee to Standing Rock at 7 p.m. at the Eureka Theater.
