"Everything Sad is Untrue (a true story)" by Daniel Nayeri
(BR23597, DB101953 and LP026264)

 

In an Oklahoma middle school, Khosrou recounts to his skeptical classmates the tales of his refugee family’s history, stretching back years, decades, and centuries. Starting with his mother’s vocal embrace of Christianity in a country that made such a thing a capital offense, Khosrou deftly weaves through stories of fleeing in the middle of the night and the
jasmine-scented city of Isfahan, peppered
with a richness of ancient tales and Persian
folklore. Khosrou stakes his claim to the
truth with his tales of heartbreak and
resilience, imparting to the reader to speak
their own truth and be heard.

"Winter Counts" by David Heska Wanbli Weiden
(BR023423 and DB100989)

 

Virgil Wounded Horse is the local enforcer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. When justice is denied by the American legal system or the tribal council, Virgil is hired to deliver his own punishment. But when heroin arrives on the reservation and finds Virgil’s own nephew, his vigilantism becomes personal. As he follows a lead to Denver, he links together expanding cartel activity and new tribal council initiatives that force him to face his own demons and reclaim
his Native identity – bringing him to realize
being Native American in the 21st century
comes at an incredible cost.
