FIRESIDE READING SERIES: Marcie Rendon, Murder on the Red River
February 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Marcie R. Rendon
"Murder on the Red River"
Marcie Rendon’s debut mystery novel introduces us to Cash, a tough, 19-year-old Anishinabe woman who was taken away from the reservation as a child and grew up in more foster homes than she can remember. Now a farm laborer and pool shark in Fargo, ND, Cash’s life changes when a dead body is found on the Minnesota side of the Red River and her longtime friend, Sheriff Wheaton, enlists her to help solve the case. Rendon, a member of the White Earth Anishinabe Nation, is an accomplished playwright, poet, and author of books for children, including "Pow Wow Summer."
