1/30 MN Reads: My Mother Is Now Earth
We'll talk with author Mark Anthony Rolo, an enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, about his book, "My Mother is Now Earth."
With an innocent and sometimes brutal child's view, Rolo recounts stories of a woman who battles poverty, depression, her abusive husband, and isolation through the long northern Minnesota winters, and of himself, her son, who struggles at school, wrestles with his Ojibwe identity and how he comes to understand his mother's fight to live with dignity, not despair.
