Program Description


Join us as we welcome the author the 2024 One Book One Town selection Warrior Girl Unearthed, Angeline Boulley.  We are honored to host Angeline Boulley at Fairfield University Quick Center for the Arts, located at 1073 North Benson Road.

In this coming-of-age thriller, Perry Firekeeper-Birch always knows who she is—the laidback twin, the troublemaker, the best fisher on Sugar Island.  But as she faces missing Indigenous women in her community, her family embroiled in a murder investigation, and greedy grave robbers who seek to profit off what belongs to her Anishinaabe tribe, Perry begins to question everything.  Old rivalries, sister secrets, and botched heists and will not stop her from uncovering the mystery before the ancestors and missing women are lost forever. 

Angeline Boulley is an enrolled member of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians and a storyteller who writes about her Ojibwe community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  She is a former Director of the Office of Indian Education at the U.S. Department of Education.  Warrior Girl Unearthed is the stand-alone companion to Boulley’s 2021 debut best-selling novel Firekeeper’s Daughter.

Registration for this event is required.  Please call (203) 256-3160 with any questions.
