At its heart, The Seed Keeper, by Minnesota author Diane Wilson can be seen as a story about a journey and discovery. The second book and first fiction book by Wilson, the story follows the novel’s main character Rosalie Iron Wing as she discovers the roots of her people — both through history and through the plants she grows in her garden.

It’s an overly simplified synopsis of her book, but it reflects Wilson’s own life as a member of the Dakota people and those traditions that have been carried through the years.

Wilson talked about these elements, among other things during a presentation Thursday night at the Austin Public Library as part of the Page Turners City-Wide read. To read entire article, click here.
