Join us for a backyard Downtown Book Club discussion on the book, This Tender Land, by William Kent Krueger. Attendees will meet in a CFE member's backyard in Bucktown. This is a Bring Your Own (BYO) dinner event.
About the Book:
In the summer of 1932, on the banks of Minnesota's Gilead River, the Lincoln Indian Training School is 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. With the feel of a modern classic, This Tender Land is an enthralling, bighearted epic that shows how the magnificent American landscape connects us all, haunts our dreams, and makes us whole.
