Please join us in congratulating Big Read author and 1983 NEA Literature Fellow Louise Erdrich, who won The National Book Award yesterday for her 14th novel, The Round House. In preparation for her new work, let’s listen to a scene from the Big Read selection, Love Medicine, that covers difficult territory---a family in the throes of change on a North Dakota Ojibwe reservation. First we'll hear from Erdrich herself. Take it away, Louise. [3:16]
