In the Night of Memory (Linda LeGarde Grover) NEWLinda LeGarde Grover will be at Lake of the Isles Lutheran Church on Thursday, May 30 at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, In the Night of Memory: A Novel, hosted by Birchbark Books. She will be joined by Marcie Rendon, author of Murder on the Red River.

 

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.

 

"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


"Told with vibrancy by an Ojibwe professor and poet, this own voices story of Ojibwe girls in a situation only too common for indigenous families shouldn’t be missed." —Library Journal
