Boulley is the author of “Firekeeper’s Daughter” — a New York Time bestselling novel and the 2022 selection for Reading Across Rhode Island’s (RARI) all-state read. A groundbreaking young adult thriller about a Native teen who must root out the corruption in her community, “Firekeeper’s Daughter” gives fascinating insight into life on and off an Indian reservation told through the eyes of a resilient and resourceful heroine.
Boulley, an enrolled member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, is a storyteller who writes about her Ojibwe community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. She is also a former director of the Office of Indian Education at the U.S. Department of Education. Boulley lives in southwest Michigan, but her home will always be on Sugar Island.
“Firekeeper’s Daughter” is Boulley’s debut novel and was an instant #1 New York Times bestseller. It also won the Walter Dean Myers Award for Outstanding Children’s Literature teen category in 2022.
Tickets are $35 and includes admission to the talk and a reception with refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing. To register for the event, go here.
