Jim Northrup’s newest book, Anishinaabe Syndicated: A View from the Rez, chronicles the years 1989-2001, a time when Indian Country saw enormous changes in treaty rights, casino gambling, language renewal, and tribal sovereignty. Northrup wrote about all these changes while he lived them, making observations and jokes and telling stories in his syndicated column, The Fond du Lac Follies.
Northrup recently appeared on Duluth’s WDIO-TV, talking about his book and upcoming event at the Fond du Lac Community Center on Saturday, February 26, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Jim will also be in the Twin Cities for a book signing and reading on Tuesday. March 15, at 7:00 p.m. at Birchbark Books.
