Once in a Blue Moon Lodge (Lorna Landvik)Grover_Onigamiising coverLorna Landvik and Linda LeGarde Grover will be at Zenith Bookstore on Saturday, September 16 at 1:00 p.m. as part of the store's Grand Opening Book Fair, where they will host readings and talks of their books Once in a Blue Moon Lodge: A Novel and Onigamiising: Seasons of an Ojibwe Year. They will be joined by authors Brian Freeman and Barton Sutter.


Once in a Blue Moon Lodge: 

With her trademark wit and warmth, Lorna Landvik follows Nora Rolvaag (the do-or-die-trying daughter of Patty Jane) and a cast of characters between city and wooded retreat, Minnesota and Norway, a past that’s secret and a future that’s promising, but uncertain. Readers are in for a rollicking good time with characters whose strengths, foibles, and choices will have you laughing and crying.


"There is a charm and warmth to this hopeful tale in which love is the glue that holds people together. Landvik's love for her characters is evident." —Kirkus Reviews



Long before it was known as Duluth, the land at the western tip of Lake Superior was known to the Ojibwe as Onigamiising, “the place of the small portage.” In fifty short essays, Linda LeGarde Grover reflects on the spiritual beliefs and everyday practices that carry the Ojibwe through the year and connect them to this northern land of rugged splendor. 


"Reading these essays is like quietly listening to a thoughtful elder telling tales, spinning stories, and subtly offering wise guidance to her descendants, as well as to anyone else fortunate enough to hear." —ForeWord Reviews
