The Night Library: The Round House


For the November meeting of the Cauldron’s feminist bookclub: The Night Library, we will be reading The Round House by Louise Erdrich.

Winner of the National Book Award for fiction, The Round House transports readers to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. It is an exquisitely told story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends and forever transforms his family.

Riveting and suspenseful, Erdrich’s The Round House is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fiction—at once a powerful coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family, history, and culture.

Please only sign up if you will definitely be able to attend as spots are very limited!

Our bookclub meets bi-monthly IRL. We will have a digital discussion component as well!

FYI: Upcoming book selections + discussion dates will be announced here (and all over our social media duh).

What is The Night Library?

Books are our favorite tool for making sense of this wild world. The Night Library is The Cauldron’s feminist, radically open, community-minded book club hosted by bats Betsy Willett and Meghan Nesmith. We’ll embrace texts from philosophy to pop culture, with an emphasis on diverse voices and authors, and leave no mind un-magicked.

Betsy Willett is a writer, researcher, editor, art lover, and book nerd and can be found parenting her puppy in Cambridge.

Meghan Nesmith is a writer, editor, and obsessive living in JP who can be found reading in the bath, in the rain, and on trains.
