Erica Wurth on Mental Landscapes in Native American Fiction at AWP

  • The Los Angeles Convention Center 1201 S Figueroa St, Meeting Room Level, Rm 402 AB Los Angeles, CA, 90015 (map)

As part of the Associated Writer’s Program, Erica Wurth, author of CRAZY HORSE'S GIRLFRIEND, will be speaking about “Inner Monologue and Outer: Mental Landscapes in Native American Fiction.” The event is on April 2nd in Room 402 AB of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

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.
