An Evening With S.D. Nelson

Author and illustrator of award-winning children’s books, S.D. Nelson talked of growing up with one foot in two worlds — his home in Fargo, North Dakota and the reservation home of his mother’s family. Nelson talked of the influences his Native American heritage has on his work and the path that led him to bring traditional stories to a wide audience of children of all backgrounds.
Broadcast premiere 2010
