Author Event with Angeline Boulley


Don't miss out on your chance to hear from New York Times best-selling author Angeline Boulley, who will be visiting the Grandville Branch at 6:30 PM on Thursday, May 5. She will be speaking about her book Firekeeper’s Daughter, an electrifying thriller layered with a rich exploration of the modern Native experience, a reckoning of current and historical injustices, and a powerful celebration of community. A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.

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 and was an instant #1 NYT Bestseller. She also was honored in 2022 with the Walter Dean Myers Award for Outstanding Children’s Literature (Teen category), the Michael L. Printz Award,
the William C. Morris YA Debut Award and the American Indian Youth Literature Young Adult Honor Award.
