"A powerful debut novel of love, hardship, and family bonds on an American Indian reservation—from the author of the award-winning short story collection The Dance Boots

Set in northern Minnesota, this novel follows a trio of American Indian women, from the 1970s to the present, observing their lives intersect on the fictional Mozhay Point reservation. Linda LeGarde Grover connects the sense of place with the experience of Native women who came of age during the days of the federal termination policy and the struggle for tribal self-determination."

We will read the book prior to the session and during our session together will discuss a selected reading and author.

Our goal will be to examine these authors’ works in contexts of cultural and historical significance that will illuminate the meaningful “work” they do for Native and non-Native readers.

Minnesota is fortunate indeed to be homeland to many vibrant populations of Native nations. And our region is consequently also home to a rich and important body of Native American literature.
