Writer's Salon featuring Brenda Child & Jonathan Thunder
Writer's Salon featuring Brenda Child & Jonathan Thunder

Drury Lane Books | Grand Marais MN

Windy Girl is blessed with a vivid imagination. From Uncle she gathers stories of long-ago traditions, about dances and sharing and gratitude. Windy can tell such stories herself—about her dog Itchy Boy and the way he dances to request a treat and how he wriggles with joy in response to, well just about everything. This playful story by Brenda J. Child is accompanied by a companion retelling in Ojibwe by Gordon Jourdain and brought to life by Jonathan Thunder’s vibrant dreamscapes. The result in a powwow tale for the ages.

Brenda & Johnathan will read their new children’s book and discuss the making of the story and the Ojibwe translation process.

Brenda J. Child is a professor of American studies at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. Gordan Jourdain teaches at the Misaabekong Ojibwe Language Immersion program for Duluth Public Schools. Jonathan Thunder is an award-winning painter and digital media artist residing in Duluth.
