A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction in 2020, The Dutch House spans five decades in the lives of siblings Maeve and Danny Conroy. The Dutch House is the spectacular mansion in Pennsylvania where they grew up. Having already been abandoned by their biological mother, their lives change even more when their father dies. A rift develops between them and their stepmother Andrea and it taints the entire trajectory of their lives.

Living Literature Performance: Firekeeper’s Daughter

On Saturday May 20 from 2 - 4:30 p.m., Living Literature delivers a readers’ theatre performance inspired by Firekeeper’s Daughter, the debut novel from Ojibwe author Angeline Boulley. The book is thriller, a mystery, a romance, a love letter to Ojibwe culture and a contemplative exploration of existing between two cultural identities. This vibrant program will also delve into the work of two other indigenous authors, drawing meaning from Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer and The Tower by Madeleine Hutchins.

Living Literature is a non-profit collective of Rhode Island based artists and educators who teach literature through a unique and imaginative process. Founded in 1996, the group has created more than 50 presentations based on poems, stories, novels and plays. 

Attendance is free and best for ages 12 and older. 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Milford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. We thank the Milford Cultural Council for their generous support in the funding of this program.
