Teens and adults are invited to read and discuss Angeline Boulley’s debut novel The Firekeeper’s Daughter, Michigan Humanities’ choice for the 2023-24 Great Michigan Read. Be one of the first 15 people to sign up for the discussion at White Lake Community Library scheduled for Wednesday, March 20th at 6pm, and receive a free copy of the book courtesy of Michigan Humanities. Books will be available beginning February 15th. Copies are also available for borrowing. 

Readers of The Firekeeper’s Daughter will follow the journey of 18-year-old Daunis Fontaine, a biracial tribal member, as she navigates the challenges of her dual identity, the trauma of losing loved ones, and the pressure of being a bridge between two cultures.

The 2023–24 Great Michigan Read is presented by Michigan Humanities and supported by national, statewide, and local partners, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, The Meijer Foundation, Library of Michigan, Image Creative Group, BiblioBoard, and Michigan Radio Reads.

Angeline Boulley is scheduled to visit Muskegon County on Wednesday, April 17th, at Orchard View High School. For more info:
