You are invited to join our 2nd Tuesday Book Group on October 12 at 1 pm to discuss William Kent Kreuger’s novel “This Tender Land.” In the summer of 1932, on the banks of Minnesota’s Gilead River, the Lincoln Indian Training School is a soulless place where Native American children, forcibly separated from their parents, are sent to be educated. It is also home to Odie O’Banion and his brother Albert, the only two white faces among the hundreds of children in the school. After committing a terrible crime, Odie and Albert are forced to flee the school, along with their best friend Mose and a broken little girl named Emmy. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, these four orphan vagabonds set out into the unknown, crossing paths with other souls on their own journeys. With the feel of a modern classic, William Kent Kreuger’s novel is an enthralling, big-hearted epic that shows how the American landscape connects us all and can help make us whole.
