Jim Northrup is an Anishinaabe author, performer, and satirist from the Fond du Lac Indian reservation in Minnesota. His syndicated column, the Fond du Lac Follies, won the award for the best column by the Native American Journalists Association in 1999. He also has won awards for his autobiographies, which use humor to discuss and heal the darker sides of life, including surviving abuse at a government boarding school and PTSD from his service in the Marines during the Vietnam War. Mr. Northrup will read from his most recent book, Anishinaabe Syndicated, A View From The Rez, released in 2011, and talk about his current project, a work of fiction entitled Dirty Copper.
This event is sponsored by the Department of American Indian Studies, Office of Academic Affairs, Department of History, Office of Multicultural and Minority Affairs, Office for Community & Civic Engagement, and the Teaching and Learning Center. It is free and open to the public. Mr. Northrup's books will be available for purchase and for him to sign at the event.
