Erica Wurth at the University of Michigan Book Festival

  • University of Michigan, East Quad 701 E. University Ave. Ann Arbor, MI, 48109

 

Erika Wurth, author of CRAZY HORSE’S GIRLFRIEND, will be participating in the publishing panel, “Unheard Voices,” at the University of Michigan Book Festival on Saturday, March 12th.

Filled with complex characters overcoming and being overcome by the circumstances of their surroundings, CRAZY HORSE’S GIRLFRIEND thoroughly shakes up cultural preconceptions of what it means to be Native American today. Margaritte is a sharp-tongued, drug-dealing, sixteen-year-old Native American who dreams of escaping a Colorado town crippled by poverty, unemployment, and drug abuse before the daily ramifications of teen pregnancy eat her alive.
