In the Night of Memory (Linda LeGarde Grover) NEWLinda LeGarde Grover will be at Trinity Episcopal Church on Tuesday, October 15 at 7:00 p.m. for Excelsior Bay Books' Literature Lovers' Night Out to discuss her new book, In the Night of Memory: A Novel. She will be joined by Lynn Cullen, Meg Waite Clayton, and Hank Phillipi Ryan, and books will be available for purchase and signing. Tickets are $20, with $10 going toward a book coupon, and can be purchased here.


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

"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
