As part of a series of events celebrating “The Big Read,” a community-wide reading initiative, the H. P. Wright Library in Ventura will host a drum circle presentation Wednesday, October 8, 2008 at 3:30 p.m. This family oriented event, presented by Pulse Drumming of Ventura, will demonstrate healing ceremony drumming styles used by native peoples of the south west. All ages are invited to attend this free program.

The “Big Read” book selection is Bless Me, Ultima, by Rudolfo Anaya. All are invited to read the book and join in on various events and book discussions happening throughout the county through the month of October.
The heroine of the book, Ultima, is a curandera, which means healer.

This event is co-sponsored by the City of San Buenaventura and the San Buenaventura Friends of the Library and is free to the public.
