A SONG OVER MISKWAA RAPIDS event at Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery with Linda LeGarde Grover

June 22 @ 12:00 pm 2:00 pm CST

Linda LeGarde Grover will join Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery on Saturday, June 22, for a reading and discussion of her new novel, A Song over Miskwaa Rapids, at 12:00 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public.

Linda LeGarde Grover weaves an intimate and complex novel of Mozhay Point and its people with A Song over Miskwaa Rapids. Margie Robineau, fighting for her family’s long-held allotment land, uncovers events connected to a long-ago escape plan, and the burial—at once figurative and painfully real—of not one crime but two. While Margie pieces the facts together, Dale Ann is confronted by her own tightly held secrets and the truth that the long ago and the now are all indelibly linked, no matter how much we try to forget.
