Louise Erdrich: Few Resources on the Author

Louise Erdrich is an American author or you might call her a 'native American author'. I posted one of her quotes on Facebook / Twitter and thought I might as well collect some resources on her writings and post them on my blog.


1. Oprah's website talks about one of Erdrich's novels, The Plague of Doves. At http://www.oprah.com/omagazine/The-Plague-of-Doves-by-Louise-Erdrich-Book-Review


2. There is an interview on NPR with Louise Erdrich at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4933011 and the transcript is there as well.


3. The Smithsonian Magazine has another 2006 interview with Louise Erdrich here: http://www.smithsonianmag.com/people-places/erdrich.html


4. The Lannan Foundation has got an audio interview (as well as a downloadable podcast) with Louise Erdrich at http://www.lannan.org/lf/rc/event/louise-erdrich/


5. The University of Minnesota has an informative biographical/critical sketch on the author. This is at http://voices.cla.umn.edu/artistpages/erdrichLouise.php


6. Gale has a longish and informative bio-critical write-up on Louise Erdrich at http://www.gale.cengage.com/free_resources/whm/bio/erdrich_l.htm


I think these are very interesting and informative resources to explore on the author.
