In the Night of Memory (Linda LeGarde Grover)Linda LeGarde Grover will be at Drury Lane Books on Saturday, June 15 at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, In the Night of Memory: A Novel.

 

Some ruptures simply cannot be repaired; they can only be lived through, or lived with. Linda LeGarde Grover returns to the fictional Mozhay Point Reservation in this nuanced, moving, often humorous picture of two Ojibwe girls becoming women in the long, sharply etched shadow of Native American history.

 

"In the Night of Memory is character driven and lyrical. Its vast, distinct chorus of matrilineal American Indian voices ring in melancholic yet dauntless tones, clarifying that community and nurturing can ameliorate absence." —Foreword Reviews


"With In the Night of Memory, Linda LeGarde Grover offers us a gift of story across generations of Native American women. This book examines what it means to grow up poor, grow up female, and grow up in a place that should be home but feels far from belonging. Grover creates a tapestry of history and imagination, a weaving of perspectives beautiful and wise, a collection of truths that anchors and honors the experiences of Indigenous women." —Kao Kalia Yang, author of The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father
