(IN-PERSON EVENT) Morning Book Club: The Seed Keeper

Wednesday April 5 at 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Join the Morning Book Club to talk about The Seed Keeper by Diane Wilson. The Seed Keeper follows a Dakota family’s struggle to preserve their way of life, and the sacrifices they make to protect what matters most.

“A thoughtful, moving meditation on connections to the past and the land that humans abandon at their peril.” (Kirkus Review)

“Compelling… The Seed Keeper invokes the strength that women, land, and plants have shared with one another through the generations.” (Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants and Gathering Moss)

Copies of the book and a reader’s guide will be available to check out ahead of time at the Reference Desk.

Past participation is not required for this once-a-month book club. Everyone is welcome to join the low-key, no long-term commitment, friendly group. Participation is limited to 15 to allow for social distancing and registration is required.
