The CircleAward-winning First Nations author Joseph Boyden will be the featured guest at the annual fundraiser for The Circle on November 7. His first book, Three Day Road, is the story of two Cree men from northwestern Canada whose lives are forever changed by their experiences in the trench warfare of World War I. Called “A beautifully written and haunting story of survival and innocence shattered, of friendship, death, redemption and love of the land” by Isabel Allende, the book won the Amazon/Books in Canada First Novel Award and the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize.

Since 1980, The Circle, published in Minneapolis, has presented news from a Native American perspective to readers across the country. The event features hearty hors d’oeuvres (“delicious Native-inspired food that’s good for you”), a silent auction of Native art, and great conversation with interesting people. RSVP by November 1.
