REI Online Book Discussion: The Night Watchman

October 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Please join us for the Racial Equity Initiative (REI) online book discussions for The Night Watchman, a 2021 Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Louise Erdrich, a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. Based on historic events, the novel tells the moving story of the author’s grandfather’s battle to stop Congress from taking Chippewa lands and identity – the unanticipated “termination” of the tribe. Strong characters populate the novel, especially women, and Erdrich describes their adventures and struggles in vivid, loving, and sometimes grim detail. This beautifully written novel is a tale of resistance, courage, and love.

The discussions will take place via Zoom at 6:30 pm on:

  • Monday, October 25
  • Monday, November 1
  • Monday, November 8

REGISTER BELOW. Note: You should receive a confirmation email from Calvary after you register. A Zoom link will be sent to you in a separate email prior to the start of the online discussion and will work for all three sessions.

Check out the book from your local library, or purchase from a local bookstore via IndieBound.org or from Amazon.com and start reading!

Questions? Please contact Erin King.

 

As part of Calvary’s Racial Equity Initiative (REI) to recognize and to educate ourselves about systemic racism and to explore the unconscious bias in our own hearts and minds, we have launched a series of programs to help promote discussion and understanding. Reading and discussing books together is one form of education.
