Join in reading and discussing Minnesota author Louise Erdrich’s “The Night Watchman” which was recently nominated for a MN Book Award. Based on the extraordinary life of Erdrich’s grandfather who worked as a night watchman and carried the fight against Native dispossession from rural North Dakota all the way to Washington, D.C., this powerful novel explores themes of love and death with lightness and gravity and unfolds with the elegant prose, sly humor, and depth of feeling of a master craftsman. You may purchase the book from her Minneapolis bookstore, Birchbark Books, or other sources. It is available in all formats.
