Join us for the kickoff event of Wisconsin Reads The Round House with Kimberly Blaeser

From wisconsinreads.org "Louise Erdrich’s The Round House explores cultural differences and divisions we see within Wisconsin communities, as well as efforts to close those gaps. Capturing the story of a 13-year-old Chippewa boy, Joe Coutts, who witnesses the trauma of a sexual assault on his mother, the vision of Wisconsin Reads The Round House is to provide diverse audiences access to an important story of how sexual assault impacts a Native American family and its surrounding community."
