The Little Falls Carnegie Library is hosting Ojibwe author Linda LeGrande Grover on Tuesday, September 17, 2019.
The staff wanted to create an eye-catching display to promote the event. Laura Hansen and Julia Mueller called on the assistance of local historic sites. The Friends of Linden Hill Historic Estate brought in Ojibwe dance boots, beaded bags and more from the Laura Jane Musser collection. The Morrison County Historical Society responded by loaning a woven basket and beaded leggings from The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum. Patron Mona Marshall who is enrolled member of the White Earth Reservation brought in books and photos to complete the display.
Grover's debut collection of short stories, The Dance Boots, won the Flannery O'Connor Award and the 2011 Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize. Her poetry collection The Sky Watched: Poems of Ojibwe Liveswon the 2017 Northeastern Book Award for Poetry. Her first novel, The Road Back to Sweetgrass, received the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers and Storytellers 2015 Fiction Award. Her latest novel is In the Night of Memory.
