Writing Out Loud: Angeline Boulley
September 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Angeline Boulley, an enrolled member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, is a storyteller who writes about her Ojibwe community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. She is a former Director of the Office of Indian Education at the U. S. Department of Education. Angeline lives in Southwest Michigan, but her home will always be on Sugar Island. Firekeeper’s Daughter is her debut novel. The novel is soon to be adapted for Netflix by the Obama Production Company, Higher Ground.
Writing Out Loud was created in 1984 with a grant from Indiana Humanities. Since then, more than 140 authors have appeared at the library. Programs are supported with funds by the Patrons of Writing Out Loud, Michigan City Public Library Endowment Fund and Friends of the Library, with Barnes & Noble of Valparaiso providing books for sale for each event.
