Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning author of Ordinary Grace William Kent Krueger, who will sign and discuss his new novel, “This Tender Land”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “This Tender Land” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

1932, Minnesota—the Lincoln School is a pitiless place where hundreds of Native American children, forcibly separated from their parents, are sent to be educated. It is also home to an orphan named Odie O’Banion, a lively boy whose exploits earn him the superintendent’s wrath. Forced to flee, he and his brother Albert, their best friend Mose, and a brokenhearted little girl named Emmy steal away in a canoe, heading for the mighty Mississippi and a place to call their own. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, these four orphans will journey into the unknown and cross paths with lost souls of all kinds.
