At the Library for March 15th, 2016
“The Ktunaxa language has no world for extinct. Let’s keep it that way.” These phrase read on poster sparked Christopher Horsethief to spend his academic career researching whether this phrase was true or not. His book, ‘Emergent Complex Behavior in Social Networks’ is an exhaustive look at the emergence, resilience, and collective intelligence in the Ktunaxa speech community.
Malcolm Croft provides fun and interesting facts about every country in the world for younger readers in his latest work, ‘The Travel Book.’
