Event Description:

Join AAUW and our ¡Adelante! Book of the Month Club in commemorating Native American Heritage Month as we talk with Winona LaDuke about her book The Winona LaDuke Chronicles: Stories from the Front Lines in the Battle for Environmental Justice.

The Winona LaDuke Chronicles is a collection of timely, persuasive, and inspiring stories of indigenous communities — from the Canadian subarctic to the heart of the Navajo Nation. It is an account of LaDuke’s personal journey to recovery, beginning when her home burned down in 2008. The book is also a story of strength and resilience — not just LaDuke’s own but also that of many tribal and First Nations communities in North America who struggle just to survive. We hope you will join us for a great discussion with this inspiring champion of environmental justice.

About AAUW’s Adelante Book of the Month Club

Female authors are much less likely than male authors to have their books reviewed in major publications like the New York Times and Harper’s Magazine. That’s why we created the Adelante Book of the Month Club: to spotlight engrossing stories and writing by women from all backgrounds. We also connect our members to some of the authors we feature through web discussions. Stay in the know about upcoming author discussions or start your own book club. 

Registration for this event is now closed. If you are interested in participating in other Adelante book discussions, please fill out this form. If you are interested in learning more about this year’s book selections or the Adelante book club click here.
