Book Study—White Birch, Red Hawthorne: A Memoir by Nora Murphy

Nora Murphy tells the story of her ancestors’ Maple Grove land which was, long before the Irish arrived, home to three Native tribes: the Dakota, Ojibwe and Ho–Chunk. That her dispossessed ancestors’ homestead was built upon another, far more brutal dispossession is the hard truth underlying Murphy’s search for the deeper connections between this contested land and the communities who call it home. Join the conversation, led by Acting Senior Minister Paula Northwood, as we look at Murphy’s personal investigation into the multigenerational cost of immigration and genocide in the American heartland. Audience: High School to Adult
