Minneapolis writer Louise Erdrich has three books out this fall, and you'll have two chances to see her. A new version of her highly acclaimed 1998 novel, "The Antelope's Wife," is out this fall, not just revised but "radically revised," says her Website. It's out in paperback, and she'll be signing copies from 5-8 p.m. Sept. 5 at her bookstore, Birchbark Books, 2115 W. 21st St. in Minneapolis.
That same evening she'll be signing copies of her middle-school book, "Chickadee," the latest in the Birchbark House series.
Her newest novel, "The Round House," pubs Oct. 2. And that night she'll do a reading and signing at 7 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcoal Church, 1917 Logan Av., Minneapolis. All is free and open to the public.
Erdrich also is working on a graphic novel collaboration with her daughter, Aza Edrich, who has illustrated her mother's short story, "Nero," which ran in the New Yorker earlier this summer. You can see a preview of the graphic novel version on the Birchbark Books blog.
