Lights, camera, action! In honor of Native American Heritage Month, the State Indian Museum is proud to present a very special Native American Film Festival on Saturday, November 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Informative, contemporary – and sometimes controversial – Native films will be shown throughout the day. The films explore topics of importance to Native people throughout American and include film titles such as Grandmother’s Prayer, Two Spirits, Original Patriots, Six Generations, Dakota 38, and Smokin’ Fish.

Access Sacramento Applies for New Low Power FM Radio Station

Access Sacramento Applies for New Low Power FM Radio Station

Access Sacramento’s radio operation “The Voice” may begin broadcasting over-the-airwaves from downtown Sacramento in late 2014 if the FCC approves an application filed last week to operate a Low-Power FM (LPFM) radio station.

The application-filing window closed Friday for non-profit groups to submit an on-line request for the rarely offered LPFM broadcast frequencies.  The last opportunity was a decade ago.

 “Because a LPFM station like this broadcasts less than 10-miles in any one direction, the programming is acutely local,” said Shane Carpenter, Access Sacramento’s radio coordinator. “Because our programmers are already used to serving Sacramento County on cable, this would be a great opportunity for additional outreach.”

Ethan is back home , but he is needed back to nevernever  and to help find Kierran . Ethan is finally getting somewhere in his relationship with Kenzie and trying to have a normal relationship with her.

I loved seeing the whole gang again including Goodfellow and the cat . I could feel and understand Ethan's pain though out the novel. I do want to see what happens with the forgotten and the fey.

Book Review= B+

Thanks so much to Harlequin Teen and this is my honest Review
