The Moose Lake Public Library will host a reading by Professor Thomas Peacock at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 31, in the city council chambers.

Professor Peacock is a member of the Fond du Lac Band of Superior Chippewa and is associate dean of the College of Education and Human Services Professions at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.

Professor Peacock received his M.Ed. and Ed.D. from Harvard University and has authored and co-authored a number of books on Native education and Ojibwe history.

He will read from his most recent book, "The Four Hills of Life: Ojibwe Wisdom," which tells the wise and beautiful story about the path we walk through the seasons of life, from the springtime of youth through the winter of old age.

It discusses the hills we climb along the way, the challenges we face and the responsibilities we accept. The book explains that the path is not always easy; some of us lose our way and question the meaning of life. But when we walk the Good Path - when we commit to values and fulfill our goals - the meaning of life finds us. "The Four Hills of Life" is a timeless Ojibwe teaching for all.
