This event has ended.

Join us for a discussion of Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley a New York Times #1 bestseller about identity, loss, and justice through the experiences of a biracial, non-enrolled teen member of the Ojibwe nation.

As a biracial, unenrolled tribal member and the product of a scandal, Daunis Fontaine has never quite fit in—both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. When her family is struck by tragedy, Daunis puts her dreams on hold to care for her fragile mother. The only bright spot is meeting Jamie, the charming new recruit on her brother’s hockey team.

After Daunis witnesses a shocking murder that thrusts her into a criminal investigation, she agrees to go undercover. But the deceptions—and deaths—keep piling up and soon the threat strikes too close to home. How far will she go to protect her community if it means tearing apart the only world she’s ever known?

A limited number of copies for general checkout are available for checkout. 

Those who participate in the book discussion will receive priority registration to ride a bus to author Angeline Boulley's presentation at the WI Book Festival, Thursday, October 19 at 7:30 pm. General registration will open September 29.
