About Wisconsin Reads:

Wisconsin Reads The Round House: An NEA Big Read is a project of University of Wisconsin Colleges and Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community Colleges’ students, faculty, and staff to bring communities around the state together to discuss Louise Erdrich’s The Round House.  Written in the voice of a thirteen-year-old boy named Joe, whose mother has been brutally raped, the novel explores the impact of the rape on family members and the tribal community in particular, as well as the larger issue of sexual assault on Native American women.

With discussions, films, lectures, art exhibits, and story-telling workshops on university campuses and public libraries in the cities and surrounding areas of Rice Lake, Hayward/LCO, Marshfield, Baraboo, Waukesha and Milwaukee in March and April of 2018, the project will also provide programming for area youth, who will be introduced to Erdrich’s children’s novel The Birchbark House, as well as her poetry.

Full schedule of events in Waukesha and Milwaukee: http://wisconsinreads.org/waukeshamilwaukee/

A program of the National Endowment for the Arts, in partnership with Minneapolis-based Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read is meant to broaden understanding of the world and our communities through the sharing of a good book. Additional funding has been provided by the Wisconsin Humanities Council, the Marshfield Community Foundation, the Friends of the Marshfield Public Library, the UW Colleges, and several departments and programs at the UW Colleges, including American Indian Studies, the UW Colleges Libraries, and the UW-Barron County Foundation.
