Marquette – The One Book One Community program has planned several events related to this year’s selection, “The Round House,” a National Book Award winner for fiction by Louise Erdrich. The novel transports readers to an Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota, where a boy on the cusp of manhood seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a brutal, racist attack on his mother.
A panel discussion titled “Women, Violence and Revenge” on Wednesday, October 19 at 7 p.m. at the Marquette Regional History Center, 145 W. Spring Street in Marquette. The panel will address legal jurisdiction, the Violence Against Women Act, concepts of revenge and how adolescents deal with tragedy. A free-will admission to the center’s exhibit gallery will also be offered.
