You are invited to a private dinner with poet and novelist Louise Erdrich.
 
The dinner will celebrate the publication of her latest novel, LaRose, and is a unique opportunity for guests to hear directly from Ms. Erdrich about the book and her wider body of work.
 
The evening will be hosted by Tracy Higgins and Jim Leitner at their TriBeCa home on Saturday, October 8th. 
 
LaRose is an emotionally haunting contemporary tale of a tragic accident, a demand for justice, and a profound act of atonement with ancient roots in Native American culture.
 
Praise for LaRose: “Electric, nimble, and perceptive, this novel is about “the phosphorous of grief” but also, more essentially, about the emotions men need, but rarely get, from one another.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
Louise Erdrich is the author of fifteen novels as well as volumes of poetry, children’s books, short stories, and a memoir of early motherhood. Her novel 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. Erdrich 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. She lives in Minnesota with her daughters and is the owner of Birchbark Books, a small independent bookstore.
 
Seats at this dinner are available by making a dedicated donation to PEN America.
