      Ada Deer with Louise Erdrich: Making a Difference

      Join Birchbark Books as we celebrate the life of Native scholar and activist Ada Deer. In her stirring new memoir, Making a Difference: My Fight for Native Rights and Social Justice, Ada narrates the first eighty-three years of her life, which are characterized by her tireless campaigns to reverse the forced termination of the Menominee tribe and to ensure sovereignty and self-determination for all tribes. The evening will feature a conversation with Louise Erdrich, who writes: "Ada Deer is a personal hero of mine. Her intelligence and courage in restoring Menominee rights after the outrage of federal termination is unforgettable. We need her example more than ever in this challenging time! I am beyond thrilled to have a conversation with her." Books available for purchase at the event. Free and open to the public. Sure to be a memorable night of humor, heart, and inspiration. Not to be missed!
