      Beth Piatote: The Beadworkers

      Writer and scholar Beth Piatote presents her new book, The Beadworkers. Released to a groundswell of critical praise, this luminous debut collection opens with a feast, grounding its stories in the landscapes and lifeworlds of the Native Northwest, exploring the inventive and unforgettable pattern of Native American life in the contemporary world. Told with humor, subtlety, and beautiful spareness, the mixed-genre stories find unifying themes in the strength of kinship, the pulse of longing, and the language of return. Louise Erdrich says: "The Beadworkers is a feast of wit and storytelling. I read it once to see where Piatote would go next. Twice to savor the emotional, cultural, and structural resonance of her fine work." Book signing to follow the reading.
