The Contemporary Fiction Book Club will be discussing Louise Erdrich's book, Larose, from 10:00 to 12:00 in the Field Library Gallery.

Larose starts with a horrifying accident in which a man kills his neighbor's son, and, taking guidance from ancient Objiway traditions, offers his son to his neighbor's family in recompense. With her famous compassion and insight, Erdrich explores the concepts of justice and family in the context of two fragile families trying to do the right thing in difficult circumstances.
