The Humanities and the Professions Reading and Discussion Group was formed following NCG's 1987 Annual Meeting and uses great literary texts to examine complex social and moral dilemmas. NCG book club members meet approximately five times a year for a facilitated discussion and the opportunity to engage with one another through a shared love of literature.
Tracks by Louise Erdrich
"From award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Louise Erdrich comes an arresting, lyrical novel set in North Dakota when Native Americans were fighting to keep their lands.
Set in North Dakota at a time in the past century when Indian tribes were struggling to keep what little remained of their lands, Tracks is a tale of passion and deep unrest. Over the course of ten crucial years, as tribal land and trust between people erode ceaselessly, men and women are pushed to the brink of their endurance—yet their pride and humor prohibit surrender.
The reader will experience shock and pleasure in encountering characters that are compelling and rich in their vigor, clarity, and indomitable vitality." - Amazon
