This Tender Land by William Kent Kruger

This Tender Land Book CoverDid you know that LWV Edina has a book club?  March's pick is This Tender Land by William Kent Kruger. Described as a nature-filled adventure story, this book follows four orphans as they escape a training center for Native American children in Minnesota, canoe down the Mississippi River and discover others who are equally adrift in America in the midst of the Great Depression. The LWV Edina book club meets (virtually these days) every month on the 4th Saturday; March 27 is the next date. Members, check your newsletters for more information! Not a LWV Edina member?

LWVE and Racial Justice

One of the goals of the League of Women Voters Edina is to advocate and participate in local action to eradicate discrimination and systemic racism. To that end, we have formed the Racial Justice Action Committee, which has three subcommittees, each with a specific focus  to engage our membership and the community. We will be publishing updates to this website as we do our work. Please check the RACIAL JUSTICE page often!
