Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? Please join our virtual book club, As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature. Based on a variety of topics and featuring a range of genres, all of the books we will be reading have been written by contemporary authors. This month, we’ll be reading The Seed Keeper: A Novel by Diane Wilson (Dakota). In this haunting novel spanning several generations, Rosalie Iron Wing is sent to live with a foster family, where the reserved bookish Rosalie meets the rebellious Gaby Makespeace. Decades later, Rosalie returns to her childhood home where she begins to confront the past, in a search for family, identity, and a community where she can finally belong. Weaving together the voices of four indelible women, this novel is a beautifully told story of reawakening, of remembering our original relationship to the seeds and, through them, to our ancestors.
