Join us virtually to discuss the 2019 "This Tender Land" by William Kent Krueger.  

About this month's title:

1932, Minnesota--the Lincoln School is a pitiless place where hundreds of Native American children, forcibly separated from their parents, are sent to be educated. It is also home to an orphan named Odie O'Banion, a lively boy whose exploits earn him the superintendent's wrath. Forced to flee, he and his brother Albert, their best friend Mose, and a brokenhearted little girl named Emmy steal away in a canoe, heading for the mighty Mississippi and a place to call their own.

A limited number of physical copies of the selected title are available in advance at the Belt Branch for check out. This selection is also available digitally on the library's Overdrive and Axis 360 apps. 

This program is for adults 18+.  Discussion will be held virtually via Zoom. Advance registration required- meeting details will be e-mailed the day before the program.
