Book Your Stocking with Savannah Johnston

Book Your Stocking: Day 6

Book Your Stocking 2021

Somehow, we've nearly reached a full week of book recommendations. If you're new to the series, Book Your Stocking is a somewhat-annual advent-of-sorts in which avid readers, who are often writers as well, recommend the book that they think you'd love to find in your stocking this year. Or your sock drawer. Or that your favorite reader would like to find on the side of the road like those lone socks you see sometimes. If you've missed a day or two, or a year or two, you can find past recommendations here: 

Today, we're welcoming Savannah Johnston to the series. She herself has a new book out this year, so check for that link in her bio. :)


Recommendation: LaRose by Louise Erdrich

Why: LaRose is a beautiful story of two families, one Ojibwe, one white, enduring the loss of their sons in two very different ways, and it simply begs to be read again and again.


About today's reader: Savannah Johnston is a citizen of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, and her debut story collection Rites was recently published by Jaded Ibis Press.
