Harvard Book Store welcomes the bestselling author of Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight and Leaving Before the Rains Come ALEXANDRA FULLER for a reading from her first novel, Quiet Until the Thaw.
In Lakota Oglala Sioux Nation, South Dakota, two Native American cousins, Rick Overlooking Horse and You Choose Watson, though bound by blood and by land, find themselves at odds as they grapple with the implications of their shared heritage. When escalating anger toward the injustices, historical and current, inflicted upon the Lakota people by the federal government leads to tribal divisions and infighting. The cousins go in separate directions: Rick chooses the path of peace; You Choose, violence.
