Professor Eric Gansworth will mark the release of his newest novel, My Good Man, with a book reading, signing, and reception on Thursday, November 3 at 7:00 p.m. in the Grupp Fireside Lounge. The event is free and open to the public, and the book will be available for purchase at that time.
My Good Man is a coming-of-age story about a young indigenous man, tackling issues of race, class and masculinity. Brian is a 20-something reporter who, as the only Indigenous writer in a small city newsroom, is assigned to stereotypical stories that homogenize the Tuscarora reservation community. But when a mysterious roadside assault lands a family friend in the hospital, Brian must revisit the complex life on the reservation where he was raised. The resulting narrative takes readers through Brian’s childhood and ‘slice of life’ stories on the reservation. More profound is how the book chronicles Brian’s attempt to balance himself between Haudenosaunee and American life, between the version of his story that would prize the individual over all else and the version of Brian that depends on the entire community’s survival.
My Good Man is Eric Gansworth’s fourth book for young people.
