July 20:  Let’s Talk About It, Okalahoma-“A Plague of Doves”

6:30 pm, Stillwater Public Library, 1107 S. Duck St.  This summer, older teens and adults can read, discuss, and learn more about the Civil Rights Movement in the library's series, "Civil Rights and Equality: A Pulitzer Prize Centennial Series."  Read more about the series HERE.  July’s book “A Plague of Doves” by Louise Erdrich – Scholar Russ Tallchief.  As in all of her novels, Erdrich weaves together multiple perspectives and generational views, excavating the powerful ways that a shared multiethnic history ripples into our current lives and relationships.  Likewise, the novel displays Erdrich’s trademark blend of tragic circumstances and light comic moments.  The premise at the root of the story is the unsolved murder of a 19th-century North Dakota farm family, wrongly blamed on some nearby members of the Ojibwa tribe, who paid for the accusation with their lives.  One of the book’s multiple narrators, a mixed Ojibwa/white teenage girl, serves as the modern day perspective in a three-part narrative, naively processing along with us her grandfather’s tribal understanding and a judge’s knowledge of the local history.  Together the three gradually bring to light the story’s real fabric, both the smooth romantic ties and the historically uneasiness knots of which American history is woven.  The word “justice” appears many times throughout the novel, which offers meditations on the nature of justice in human society, in tribal culture, and in families. It seems a slippery, uncontrollable concept in the end, since, after all, “justice is prey to unknown dreams.”
