November is Native American Heritage Month, declared on Aug. 30, 1990 by former President George H. W. Bush. In celebration, California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) is hosting Native author Erika T. Wurth on Nov. 14 in the Student Center from 6 to 7:30 p.m as part of CSUMB’s Writers from the Edge series.
