Event Series Event Series: Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich

Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich

June 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

featuring Graham Culbertson, Teaching Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Literature

Louise Erdrich is winner of The National Book Critics Circle Award, the National Book Award, and the Pulitzer Prize

Set on and around a North Dakota Ojibwe reservation, the first novel by bestselling, National Book Award-winning author Louise Erdrich is the epic story about the intertwined fates of two families: the Kashpaws and the Lamartines.

With astonishing virtuosity, each chapter draws on a range of voices to limn its tales. Black humor mingles with magic, injustice bleeds into betrayal, and through it all, bonds of love and family marry the elements into a tightly woven whole that pulses with the drama of life.

Filled with humor, magic, injustice and betrayal, Erdrich blends family love and loyalty in a stunning work of dramatic fiction.

“A masterpiece, written with spellbinding authenticity.” — Philip Roth

“The beauty of Love Medicine saves us from being completely devastated by its power.” — Toni Morrison
