How powerful can words be? Do they have power beyond the grave? Pulitzer prize-winning author Louise Erdrich’s most recent novel explores the power of words in the haunting of a small independent bookstore in Minneapolis. Set amidst the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and the George Floyd riots, Flora, an American-Indian wannabe, suddenly dies. But she can’t stop visiting the bookstore and haunting her favorite book clerk, an ex-con named Tookie. Why is Flora so focused on Tookie? What did she know that could cause Tookie to come unglued?
Fee: $15.00
