Marcie Rendon

Marcie R. Rendon
Murder on the Red River

Marcie Rendon’s debut mystery novel introduces us to Cash, a tough, 19-year-old Anishinabe woman who was taken away from the reservation as a child and grew up in more foster homes than she can remember.  Now a farm laborer and pool shark in Fargo, ND, Cash’s life changes when a dead body is found on the Minnesota side of the Red River and her longtime friend, Sheriff Wheaton, enlists her to help solve the case. Rendon, a member of the White Earth Anishinabe Nation, is an accomplished playwright, poet, and author of books for children, including Pow Wow Summer.

About the Series

With cookies in one hand and coffee in the other, enjoy six weeks of free readings at Hamline Midway Library. Now in its 24th season, the Fireside Reading Series is one of The Friends’ oldest and most popular events. The series annually highlights the work of some of Minnesota’s finest writers who have published a new work in the previous year. Programs are accompanied by coffee, cider, cookies, and book signings. American Sign Language interpretation will be provided.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
