Shelterbelts is the story of a rural Minnesota community at the close of WW2. She will give a short reading and speak about her research and writing. Her books will be available for purchase.
Larry McMurtry, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Lonesome Dove, said “I read Pomme De Terre with the greatest interest and enjoyment. It’s a very vivid telling of this tragic American story. I’ve long been wanting something in fiction about the Great Sioux Uprising, and this book is the best I’ve seen.”
