On This Day, June 7

Award-winning novelist Louise Erdrich was born on this day in Little Falls, Minnesota on June 7, 1954.. Erdrich’s Native American heritage became a dominant theme in her novels, which explored the lives of American Indian families. Her first novel, Love Medicine (1984) won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Erdrich’s subsequent books, including The Beet Queen (1986), Tracks (1988), The Bingo Palace (1994), and Tales of Burning Love (1996), were critical and popular successes.  Many of Erdrich’s later works–including The Master Butchers Singing Club (2003), The Plague of Doves (2008), and Shadow Tag (2010)–draw on her multiethnic background and address issues of family, community, and history. The Plague of Doves was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2009. Find Louise Erdrich at the library, on hoopla and OverDrive (Avalon or Consortium).
