Two sisters present their latest works in a conversation informed by the dynamic of the familiar.
Louise Erdrich’s novel The Night Watchman explores themes of love and death with lightness and gravity. It’s a fictional world populated by memorable characters forced to grapple with the worst and best impulses of human nature, that touches upon the very real tragedy of missing Native American women.
In her collection of poems Little Big Bully, Heid E. Erdrich offers personal myth, American and Native American contexts, and allegories driven by women’s resistance to narcissists, stalkers, and harassers. The collective experience of Indigenous people, from ecosystem collapse due to the near-extinction of bison to the present epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women, underlie her prose.
