Native Book Discussion: Angeline Boulley (Ojibwe), Firekeeper’s Daughter: A Novel (Zoom)
June 13 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm$10.00
“Boulley, an enrolled member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, writes from a place of love for her community and shares some key teachings from her culture, even mixing languages within the context of the story. She doesn’t shy away from or sugar-coat the very real circumstances that plague reservations across the country, and she tackles these through her biracial hero who gets involved in the criminal investigation into the corruption that led to this pain. An incredible thriller, not to be missed.” ―Booklist, Starred Review
“Immersive and enthralling, Firekeeper’s Daughter plunges the reader into a community and a landscape enriched by a profound spiritual tradition. Full of huge characters and spellbinding scenes, it gives a fascinating insight into life on and off the reservation, with Daunis as a tough and resourceful heroine through every vicissitude.” ―Financial Times
Tuesday, June 13, 7-8:15 p.m. CT. You will receive the zoom link via email on the morning of the program.
$10/person. Registration ends on Monday, June 12
