Meet the Author: Nancy Bo Flood

May 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join author Nancy Bo Flood virtually with your libraries to celebrate Mother’s Day! Nancy Bo Flood will present her book, First Laugh: Welcome Baby. The First Laugh Ceremony is a Navajo way to welcome a new member of a community. As everyone – from baby’s nima (Mom) to nadi (Big Sister), to cheii (Grandfather)- tries to elicit the first joyous sound from Baby, readers are introduced to details about Navajo life and the Navajo names for family members. And don’t forget to pick up your very own Navajo bead bracelet Take Home kit from your nearest library to go along with the presentation. The event will be interpreted in Spanish and ASL in real-time for those who want to participate in either of those options.
