Book Trailer of the Week: Louise Erdrich on Her Love for Physical Books

It's always a good day when I hear about a new Louise Erdrich book - and apparently there's a new one called La Rose coming on May 10 although it's not mentioned in this wonderful clip of Louise talking about being the owner of her own independent bookstore. Of course, there's a little bit of subliminal advertising just to her right, so this does qualify as a "book trailer."

If you're curious, La Rose is about a man who accidentally kills a neighbor's son while out deer hunting.  The man and his wife then agree to give their own son to the neighbor so that she can raise him in place of the one killed.  Now, that is a hook.
