Classic Clip: Bill Moyers, Louise Erdrich, Michael Dorris on Columbus
As a follow-up to our Columbus Day coverage yesterday, here’s a video that dates from 1988 of Native authors Louise Erdrich and Michael Dorris discussing Columbus’ legacy with PBS mainstay Bill Moyers. Erdrich, whose 2012 novel The Round House won the National Book Award, was married to Dorris from 1981 until his death by suicide in 1997 — although the couple had at that point been separated for two years, and divorce was pending.
this is the link for the video.
