The Master Butchers Singing Club World Stage Premiere

Though I have never read Louise Erdrich, she has been on my TBR list for some time now. 
She is local to the Twin Cities area and owns an independent bookstore here as well.

I have seen her at an event through the Friends of the Library with her two sisters, 
also writers and poets. 

This novel came out several years ago and has now been adapted to the stage. 
It is making it's premiere at the Guthrie Theater here in Minneapolis this month 
and I am going!
I am going with my step-mother-in-law tomorrow night.
She is a huge fan of her novels and was kind enough to offer me her extra ticket!

Has anyone read Louise Erdrich?

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

I just finished listening to The Painted Drum by her. I loved her writing, but wasn't really into the story. It was enough to want to read something else. If they made a play out of this one, it must be good, right?
BTW, great blog. I think I found it through a link from the BBAW festivities, but I can't remember for sure!

I remember seeing this book when it came out & thinking I'd love to read it but just never got around to it. Can't wait to hear about the adaptation for the theater! You must gush all about it so I will know if I should find the book!

I haven't read anything by her, but I remember when Shadow Tag came out thinking it looked good and then I heard a lot of good things about the author then. I hadn't realized how big of a backlist she had!

It was certainly an unique play. I have not read the novel so I had nothing to go from but it was well acted and interesting.
