As part of a new series on history, the library will offer a speaker event Sunday focused on Native American history.
The Monona Public Library said it is partnering with the Dean House and the Blooming Grove Historical Society to launch the Monona History Club. The first meeting will be held Sunday from 2-4 p.m. at the library.
Organizers said Wisconsin Historical Society Archaeologist Dr. Amy Rosebrough will discuss pre-historic and historic Native Americans and their effigy mounds in Southern Wisconsin. The event is in recognition of Native American History Month. Rosebrough's presentation will add an emphasis on the Dane County and Monona areas.
There will be historical Native American artifacts and maps available for viewing at the presentation, event organizers said. The items are also on display at the library.
