An Evening with Mona Susan Power

Elk River Arts & Lectures is hosting a public lecture by writer Mona Susan Power on Thursday, April 4th at 7 pm at Elk River Books (122 S. 2nd St. in Livingston). The event is free and open to the public.

Mona Susan Power is the author of four books of fiction, including The Grass Dancer (a National Bestseller awarded a PEN/Hemingway Prize), Roofwalker (a collection of stories and essays awarded the Milkweed National Fiction Prize), Sacred Wilderness (a novel which received the Electa Quinney Award), and A Council of Dolls (nominated for the 2023 National Book Award). She’s a graduate of Harvard College, Harvard Law School, and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She is also the recipient of several grants in support of her writing.

Novelist Debra Magpie Earling called A Council of Dolls “resplendent and deeply compelling—a mighty, dazzling whirlwind of powerful storytelling.”

Power is an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (Iháŋktȟuŋwaŋna Dakhóta), born and raised in Chicago. She currently lives in Minnesota, where she’s working on other novels, including, The Year of Fury.

Power’s visit and the 2024 Elk River Arts & Lectures Lectures Series is made possible by the generous support of the Dennis & Phyllis Washington Foundation and individual donors. During her time in Livingston, Power will also meet with students at Park High.

Elk River Arts & Lectures is a nonprofit organization dedicated to celebrating and cultivating the literary arts in Park County.
