Future Home of the Living God

Future Home of the Living God

Signed by Louise

The world as we know it is ending. Evolution has reversed itself, affecting every living creature on earth. Science cannot stop the world from running backwards, as woman after woman gives birth to infants that appear to be primitive species of humans. Thirty-two-year-old Cedar Hawk Songmaker, adopted daughter of a pair of big-hearted, open-minded Minneapolis liberals, is as disturbed and uncertain as the rest of America around her. But for Cedar, this change is profound and deeply personal. She is four months pregnant. A chilling dystopian novel both provocative and prescient, Future Home of the Living God is a startlingly original work: a moving meditation on female agency, self-determination, biology, and natural rights that speaks to the troubling changes of our time.

ARTrageous Adventures (near Birchbark Books)

Join us this Sunday for storytelling and art making with the authors of two great books for children. Thomas Peacock will be presenting The Forever Sky. One night, a beautiful show of lights fills the sky. Niigaanii explains that the northern lights are the spirits of the relatives who have passed on. The boys imagine different relatives dancing, lighting up the sky with their graceful movements. Teresa Peterson will be sharing Grasshopper Girl. Young Psipsi loves to jump around like a grasshopper. But now she is sick in bed with aching legs. She starts feeling better as her uncle lulls her to sleep with an old Dakota trickster tale. Listen to the stories and then make some art inspired by the books!
