Erica Wurth, author of CRAZY HORSE'S GIRLFRIEND, will be part of the Center for Women Writer's Emerging Writer's Series on April 13th. The Emerging Writer's Series is presented by the Single Sister's Museum at Salem College, and author Beth Couture is also featured in the event.


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.
