  1. I just watched Louise Erdrich on a program you can see at https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=emb_logo&time_continue=2994&v=GPwuLfcbThE
    On December 2, she was interviewed on WNYC’s All of It by Alison Stewart about her new book The Night Watchman that is based on her grandfather’s story of his experience resisting the native American dispossession of their lands in the 1950s.
    I began reading her books years ago and look forward to catching up with her newer ones. One thing I remember being fascinating with was how her characters appear in different books and found it helpful to do genealogical charting of them because of all the complexities of relationships. It was through that charting that I figured out some relationships that were not explicitly stated or directly revealed in the stories they first appeared in. Looking forward to our disccussions.
