The Round House

Although the premise for The Round House, a family recovering from a brutal attack, is heavy, the reading experience is vibrant and rewarding.

About the Book

The Round House by Louise Erdrich is a National Book Award-winning book by one of the most prolific and celebrated Native American writers of our time. It tells the story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who wrestles with grief, rage, and helplessness when his mother is brutally attacked. He becomes disillusioned with the power of the law to get justice for his mother when he realizes that injustice and inequity are foundational to the structures of the very institutions we look to for protection. He learns he can only look to himself, his family, and his friends, and Erdrich paints a rich portrait of life on the reservation as his community rallies to support him.
