READING CIRCLE WILL DISCUSS THE ROUND HOUSE AT THE NEWPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY
The Newport Public Library’s Reading Circle will discuss The Round House by Louise Erdrich at noon on Tuesday, February 11. In this powerful story, 14-year-old Joe Coutz leaves his home on a North Dakota Indian reservation in search of the man who brutally attacked his mother and tore his family apart. It’s a chronology of legal loopholes that allowed the American attacker to, in effect, dodge prosecution based on the crime happening on an Indian reservation. There were many cases like it during that era.
The reading circle of The Round House is free and open to the public. For more information, please call (541)265-2153 or check the library website at NewportLibrary.org.
