Maine 201 Book Club: Allen J. Sockabasin


An Upriver Passamaquoddy by Allen J. Sockabasin

From 6.30 pm until 7.30 pm

Author of the classic children's book, Thanks to the Animals, Sockabasin championed the preservation of native culture and language, and he lived a life guided by many of the traditional customs of the Passamaquoddy. One of his legacies is our September selection: An Upriver Passamaquoddy, a memoir of his tribe's communal way of life.

The book club discussion is on Monday, September 27 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Zoom. All readers welcome!

An Upriver Passamaquoddy by Allen J. Sockabasin

When Allen was a child in the 1940s and 1950s, his village was isolated and depended largely on subsistence hunting and fishing, working in the woods, and seasonal harvesting work for its survival. Passamaquoddy was its first language, and the tribal traditions of sharing and helping one another ensured the survival of the group.
