Louise Erdrich's The Round HouseWisconsin Reads The Round House:  An NEA Big Read is a project of University of Wisconsin Colleges and Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community Colleges’ students, faculty, and staff to bring communities around the state together to discuss Louise Erdrich’s The Round House.  Written in the voice of a thirteen-year-old boy named Joe, whose mother has been brutally raped, the novel explores the impact of the rape on family members and the tribal community in particular, as well as the larger issue of sexual assault on Native American women.

With over 70 events around the state, the project also features an eBook of The Round House, which will be available to anyone who would like to participate in Wisconsin during the Big Read period. Online resources for groups, individuals, and classrooms outside of the participating communities will also be provided through the Wisconsin Reads The Round House: An NEA Big Read website and through the UW Colleges.

Campus Book Club News-    POSTPONED UNTIL MONDAY, APRIL 23rd due to weather

Forn for Love by Bruce Perry and Maia Szalavitz The Hamilton Roddis Memorial Library is hosting our book club on APRIL 23RD, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. Our New selection is  Born For Love, by Bruce D. Perry and Maia   Szalavitz.  Born for Love is the definitive book on empathy. Renowned psychiatrist Bruce Perry has appeared on Oprah, CNN, National Public Radio’s All Things Considered, and other programs as an expert in this hot area of neuroscience, and has been cited as such in Newsweek, the New York Times, and The New Yorker (in a story written by Malcolm Gladwell). He and co-writer Maia Szalavitz explore empathy’s startling importance in human evolution and its significance for our children and our society. The authors of The Boy Who was Raised as a Dog present a powerful case that love is essential…and endangered.
