Jack Gladstone was at our Literacy Night event. He's a Blackfeet artist up for a Native American Grammy. He tells stories about Blackfeet history and then goes into a song he has written. He also started and supports "Native America Speaks" in Glacier National Park, which does summer presentations for tourists. He has a Rose Bowl ring from his college days and taught at the Blackfeet College before turning professional. I'm one of his biggest fans and first heard him at a library conference last year.

Last night was a great success. The teachers want another reading night in February 2001. We created a PowerPoint presentation on the "If I Can Read" project. I gave out RIF books to every kid as a door prize. Everyone got a bag, button, and poster. It was just too much fun. We had 28 kids, 24 adults and 7 staff members and a Blackfeet storyteller.
