On December 8, 2018, from 2-3pm, author Sean J. Flynn will be at Mitzi's Books in Rapid City, talking about and signing his new book, Without Reservation Benjamin Reifel and American Acculturation.

Sean Flynn is a graduate of South Dakota State University and Texas Tech University, where he earned his M.A. and Ph.D degrees in history. He is a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe and a descendant of the Lakota leader, Spotted Tail.

Without Reservation is a biography about Benjamin ("Ben") Reifel, the first Lakota person to serve in the United States Congress. Reifel made a career out of straddling two different cultures and Flynn shows him as a man who prospered in the American mainstream without forgetting his culture.
