Congratulations, Louise! Winner of the 2012 National Book Award in Fiction for The Round House

Birchbark Books - Friday, November 16, 2012

We at Birchbark Books could not be more excited for and proud of beloved bookstore owner, Louise Erdrich. Louise received the award with her usual grace and style, speaking initially in Ojibwe as "a shout out for all the native people watching" and saying she wanted to receive the honor in "recognition of the grace and endurance of native women.”

You can view Louise's acceptance speech here.
