Louise Erdrich’s powerful novel The Round House is based on the extraordinary life of her grandfather, who worked as a night watchman and carried the fight against Native dispossession from rural North Dakota all the way to Washington, D.C.
Louise is the author of fifteen novels as well as volumes of poetry, children’s books, short stories, and a memoir of early motherhood. The Round House won the National Book Award for Fiction. The Plague of Doves won the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and her debut novel, Love Medicine, was the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. She has received the Library of Congress Prize in American Fiction, the prestigious PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction, and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize.
Louise lives in Minnesota with her daughters and is the owner of Birchbark Books, a small independent bookstore.
“When we are young, the words are scattered all around us.
As they are assembled by experience, so also are we, sentence by sentence, until the story takes shape.”
– Louise Erdrich
