Join Woodland Pattern at the Henry W. Maier Festival Park as we celebrate 30 years of the Indian Summer Festival. As always, the Woodland Pattern tent will feature hundreds of titles straight from the shelves of our bookstore, including sections for Native American history, languages, and children's books, to name just a few. 

 

Additionally, we're excited to expand our literary programming.
