Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman's Search for Justice in Indian Country

EVENT POSTPONED
Thursday, April 9th @ 7pm
Bockley Gallery (near Birchbark Books)

Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman's Search for Justice in Indian Country tells the gripping true story of a murder on an Indian reservation and the unforgettable Arikara woman who becomes obsessed with solving it. This is an exquisitely written, masterfully reported story about a search for justice and a remarkable portrait of a complex woman who is smart, funny, eloquent, compassionate, and--when it serves her cause--manipulative. Drawing on eight years of immersive investigation, Yellow Bird is a profound examination of the legacy of systematic violence inflicted on a tribal nation and a tale of extraordinary healing. Both author Sierra Crane Murdoch and Lissa Yellow Bird, the subject of the book, will be on hand for the reading, with a reception and book signing to follow.

Our Revolution: A Mother and Daughter at Midcentury

EVENT POSTPONED
Saturday, April 18th @ 7pm
Bockley Gallery (near Birchbark Books)

Birchbark Books welcomes Honor Moore for a reading of her new book, Our Revolution: A Mother and Daughter at Midcentury. Introduced by Patricia Hampl in conversation with Marian Moore. With the sweep of an epic novel, Our Revolution follows Jenny Moore, a charismatic and brilliant woman whose life changed as she became engaged in the great twentieth-century movements for peace and social justice. Jenny bequeathed to her eldest daughter, Honor, then a twenty-seven-year-old poet, her unfinished writing. As Honor pursued her own career as a writer, she was haunted by her mother’s bequest. Decades later, she delves into Jenny’s pages and forges a new relationship with the passionate seeker and truth teller she finds there. There will be a reception and book signing following the reading.
