Alexandra Fuller -- "Quiet Until the Thaw"

Alexandra Fuller will speak about and sign her new book, Quiet Until the Thaw, on Wednesday, June 28th at *7:00pm* at *Boulder Public Library's Canyon Theater*.

About the Book:
Two Native American cousins, Rick Overlooking Horse and You Choose Watson of the Lakota Oglala Sioux Nation, 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. A complex tale that spans generations and geography, Quiet Until the Thaw conjures the implications of an oppressed history, how we are bound to all who have come before and will come after us, and, most of all, to the notion that everything is always connected.

Vouchers to attend are $10 and are good for $5 off Quiet Until the Thaw. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, at the Library, over the phone, or at the door (if there are seats still available). Part of voucher proceeds will be donated to the Library Foundation.
