The Night Watchman: Historical Fiction Book Group

December 6 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

  Participate in an examination of the fictional and non-ficional context of Louise Erdrich’s The Night Watchman, winner of the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, hosted by the HIstorical Society of Princeton.

The novel was inspired by the life of Erdrich’s grandfather, who motivated other members of the Turtle Mountain Reservation to resist the Indian termination policies of the 1940s-1960s. Professor Donald L. Fixico, Affiliate Faculty of American Indian Studies, Arizona State University, will facilitate the discussion, which is held via Google Meet.  Click here to register.

Co-sponsored by the Princeton Public Library.
