Author of the Month

Louise Erdrich — novelist, poet and writer of books for children — was born in Little Falls, Minnesota. The daughter of a Chippewa Indian mother and a German-American father, she explores Native-American themes in her works, with major characters representing both sides of her heritage. She is the winner of numerous awards, including the 1984 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction for Love Medicine and the 2012 National Book Award for Fiction for The Round House.

In her latest novel, LaRose, Erdrich wields her narrative magic in an emotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in Native American culture.

North Dakota, late summer, 1999. Landreaux Iron stalks a deer along the edge of the property bordering his own. He shoots with easy confidence, but when the buck springs away, Landreaux realizes he’s killed his neighbour’s five-year-old son. Following an ancient means of retribution, Landreaux and his wife give their own five-year-old son, LaRose, to the grieving family. “Our son will be your son now,” they tell them in this powerful exploration of loss, justice, and the reparation of the human heart.
