In the Night of Memory (Linda LeGarde Grover) NEWLinda LeGarde Grover will be at the Little Falls Carnegie Library on Tuesday, September 17 at 6:00 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, starred review

 

"With gorgeous imagery and verdant prose, LeGarde Grover’s novel lays bare the pain and loss of indigenous women and children while simultaneously offering a ray of hope." —Publishers Weekly


"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
