Join Rock Spring readers to discuss Louise Erdrich’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Night Watchman. The book tells the story of Thomas “Muskrat” Wazhashk and of the Turtle Mountain People during the 1950’s, as the United States government attempted to renege on its treaties and steal Native land. The Christian Science Monitor says, “In The Night Watchman Erdrich’s blend of spirituality, gallows humor, and political resistance is at play…It may be set in the 1950s, but the history it unearths and its themes of taking a stand against injustice are every bit as timely today.”

Registration and Zoom information will be provided mid-October.
