New Washington READS Poster Features Tribal Leader

A long-time activist of tribal rights who has a reputation for speaking on behalf of the salmon is the latest face to appear on a Washington State Library Washington Reads poster. That poster, now available for download and/or purchase online, features the Nisqually Indian Tribe’s Billy Frank Jr., the longtime chairman of the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission. Frank is one of the Pacific Northwest region’s foremost Native American leaders, and he also is involved with several civic activities, including being a longtime trustee of the Washington State Historical Society.
 
Due to budget constraints, there are no free printed copies of the new poster available. But you can download it for free from the State Library Web site: http://www.sos.wa.gov/quicklinks/BillyFrank. The poster can be printed out in two sizes: 8 ½” x 11” or 11” x 17”. You can also buy 11” x 17” print quality posters for a small fee from the Washington State Department of Printing General Store. The order and cost information is provided on the store’s site: https://fortress.wa.gov/prt/printwa/wsprt/.
