Award winning author and sculptor Kent Nerburn has been on tour this month as the South Dakota One Book Author. He's been talking about his book Neither Wolf Nor Dog.

Today, he joins SDPB's Lori Walsh in the Leo P. Flynn Gallery in Sioux Falls to detail his artistic process, eloquently outlined in his most recent book Dancing with the Gods. It's a meditative exploration on the sacred work of art that challenges as much as it inspires.

The author of South Dakota's One Book selection stopped at the Rapid City Public Library on Sunday, June 9. Kent Nerburn spoke to an audience about the selected book, Neither Wolf Nor Dog, and about his life as a writer and artist. The book was made into a 2016 movie filmed on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Nerburn has written 14 books, and he tells SDPB's Victoria Wicks about his writing process.

Nerburn will be back in the Black Hills in October for the Festival of Books in Deadwood, where he'll give the keynote address.

Author Kent Nerburn's book "Neither Wolf Nor Dog" became known inside Hollywood as the great unmade Native American novel. Producers tried, and failed, to bring the book to the screen for more than 20 years. Scottish Filmmaker Steven Lewis Simpson managed the project with an 18 day shoot with a 95-year-old star and fan support from Kickstarter. "Neither Wolf Nor Dog," the film, returns to South Dakota and opens at the Brookings Cinema 8 in Brookings and the Logan Luxury 5 Theater in Mitchell. Joining us is Steven Lewis Simpson.
