Program Description

Event Details

Tookie, an Ojibwe woman, is working at Birchbark Books when she is visited by the lingering spirit of a difficult customer. Between All Soul's Day 2019 and All Soul's Day 2020, other kinds of ghosts, both personal and historic, haunt Tookie and her colleagues. Besides being an often-comical ghost story, this novel by Louise Erdrich (set in the Minneapolis bookstore she actually owns) offers insights into the effects of the global pandemic and the collateral damage of systemic racism.
