In the Night of Memory event at the UMD Library


In the Night of Memory event at the UMD Library

Linda LeGarde Grover will be at the UMD Library on Wednesday, April 10 at 4:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of her new book, In the Night of Memory: A Novel. The event is hosted by the UMD American Indian Studies Department.

Some ruptures simply cannot be repaired; they can only be lived through, or lived with. Linda LeGarde Grover returns to the fictional Mozhay Point Reservation in this nuanced, moving, often humorous picture of two Ojibwe girls becoming women in the long, sharply etched shadow of Native American history.

"With In the Night of Memory, Linda LeGarde Grover offers us a gift of story across generations of Native American women. This book examines what it means to grow up poor, grow up female, and grow up in a place that should be home but feels far from belonging. Grover creates a tapestry of history and imagination, a weaving of perspectives beautiful and wise, a collection of truths that anchors and honors the experiences of Indigenous women." —Kao Kalia Yang, author of The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father
"In the Night of Memory is character driven and lyrical. Its vast, distinct chorus of matrilineal American Indian voices ring in melancholic yet dauntless tones, clarifying that community and nurturing can ameliorate absence." —Foreword Reviews
