This lecture is part of a statewide series of events around the Wisconsin Read of Louise Erdrich's National Book Award-winning novel.
Presented by UW-Marshfield Professor of English Julie Tharp titled "Erdrich's Crusade: Sexual Violence and The Round House."
From the Wisconsin Read site:
"Louise Erdrich’s The Round House explores cultural differences and divisions we see within Wisconsin communities, as well as efforts to close those gaps. Capturing the story of a 13-year-old Chippewa boy, Joe Coutts, who witnesses the trauma of a sexual assault on his mother, the vision of Wisconsin Reads The Round House is to provide diverse audiences access to an important story of how sexual assault impacts a Native American family and its surrounding community."
