Offers readers the sweep of Hogan's work —environmental and spiritual concerns, her Chickasaw heritage, and the power of Native orality— in spare, elemental, visionary language.

A prequel to the classic Walking the Rez Road, Northrup returns to the story of Luke Warmwater. "The stories stand the test of time; blackly humorous, plainspoken, and earthy."
—Star Tribune

Bockley Gallery (next to Birchbark Books)

Join authors Linda LeGarde Grover and Erika Wurth for an evening of reading and conversation. Linda LeGarde Grover (The Dance Boots) will be reading from The Road Back to Sweetgrass -- a powerful debut novel of love, hardship, and family bonds on an American Indian reservation. Erika Wurth will be reading from her first novel, Crazy Horse's Girlfriend. Filled with complex characters overcoming and being overcome by circumstances of their surroundings, Crazy Horse's Girlfriend thoroughly shakes up cultural preconceptions of what it means to be Native American today.
