Award-winning author Linda LeGarde Grover interweaves family and Ojibwe history with stories from Misaabekong (the place of the giants) on Lake SuperiorLinda LeGarde Grover will be at Barnes & Noble Duluth on Saturday, December 4 at 1:00 p.m. for a signing of her new book, Gichigami Hearts: Stories and Histories from Misaabekong. The event includes a fundraiser for the Nett Lake Elementary School.

Long before there was a Duluth, Minnesota, the massive outcropping that divides the city emerged from the ridge of gabbro rock running along the westward shore of Lake Superior. A great westward migration carried the Ojibwe people to this place, the Point of Rocks. Against this backdrop—Misaabekong, the place of the giants—the lives chronicled in Linda LeGarde Grover’s book unfold, some in myth, some in long-ago times, some in an imagined present, and some in the author’s family history, all with a deep and tenacious bond to the land, one another, and the Ojibwe culture.

"[Grover’s] own layering of family history, creation stories and tribal lore makes this book a complex map of a place and its people in intimate, worldly and otherworldly terms." —Star Tribune

"With compelling stories of sacred places, beloved people, myths, legends, and treasured memories, Gichigami Hearts is a moving tribute to the Ojibwe past." —Carolyn Holbrook, author of Tell Me Your Names and I Will Testify
