October 7–December 15, 2023 – This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger

This Tender Land is set in 1932 in Minnesota’s Lincoln Indian Training School, a pitiless place where Native American children, forcibly separated from their parents, are sent to be educated. It is also home to Odie O’Banion, a lively orphan boy whose exploits constantly earn him the superintendent’s wrath. Odie and his brother, Albert, are the only white faces among the hundreds of Native American children at the school.

Don’t miss your opportunity to hear from William Ken Krueger. He will join us for a live author talk on Tuesday, December 5 at 2 p.m. ET.
