Thursday, November 11: 7 – 8 pm Online Event (Registration for this event opens Thursday, October 21)
There are so many amazing books about diverse characters and by diverse authors, and we’re gonna read them all! Pick up a loot from the Library with a free copy of the book, snacks, and activities – all of which are yours to keep! Then join us to discuss the book via Zoom and recommend other great reads. This month’s book is Elatsoe by Darcy Little Badger.
Elatsoe—Ellie for short—lives in an alternate contemporary America shaped by the ancestral magics and knowledge of its Indigenous and immigrant groups. She can raise the spirits of dead animals—most importantly, her ghost dog Kirby. When her beloved cousin dies, all signs point to a car crash, but his ghost tells her otherwise: He was murdered. Who killed him and how did he die? With the help of her family, her best friend Jay, and the memory great, great, great, great, great, great grandmother, Elatsoe, must track down the killer and unravel the mystery of this creepy town and its dark past. But will the nefarious townsfolk and a mysterious Doctor stop her before she gets started?
