Second Saturday Book Club Returns!


Join us on Saturday, September 12th for a discussion of The Round House by Louise Erdrich.  Meetings take place from 11:00 to 12:30 in the Community Room.  New members always welcome!

roundhouseOne Sunday in the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked.  In one day, Joe’s life is irrevocably transformed.  He tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed.  Increasingly alone, Joe finds himself thrust prematurely into an adult world for which he is ill prepared.

While his father, a tribal judge, endeavors to wrest justice from a situation that defies his efforts, Joe becomes frustrated with the official investigation and sets out with his trusted friends to get some answers of his own.  Their quest takes them first to the Round House, a sacred space and place of worship for the Ojibwe.  And this is only the beginning.
