Meet Alexandra Fuller
- July 1, 2017
The author of Quiet Until the Thaw comes to DC on Wed., July 5th, at 7PM.
Starting with Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight and continuing with Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness, Fuller has kept readers riveted with stories of her unconventional family and her early years in Africa. With her first novel, the accomplished memoirist draws on the history of her adopted home, the American West, to focus on the lives of two Native American men. Cousins, the two grow up on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, but then their paths diverge. While one rebels against the unjust treatment of Native Americans and ends up in prison, the other lives quietly on the Reservation, teaching his sons Lakota ways. Thirty years later, the two men meet again, with explosive results.
This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis. At Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington, DC. Click here for more information.
