Linda LeGarde Grover & Erika Wurth: Reading & Conversation

Join authors Linda LeGarde Grover and Erika Wurth for an evening of reading and conversation. Linda LeGarde Grover (“The Dance Boots”) will be reading from “The Road Back to Sweetgrass” – a powerful debut novel of love, hardship, and family bonds on an American Indian reservation. Erika Wurth will be reading from her first novel, “Crazy Horse's Girlfriend.” Filled with complex characters overcoming and being overcome by circumstances of their surroundings, “Crazy Horse's Girlfriend” thoroughly shakes up cultural preconceptions of what it means to be Native American today.
