A Retelling of 19th Century Sauk Land Dispossession & Scott County Settlement

918studio press announced today it will release a fifth anniversary edition of "Her Kind," a novel, by Robin Throne in September. The first edition was Throne's debut novel, a historical fictionalized account of the Sauk relocation to the Iowa territory and Scott County settlement following the Black Hawk war for which she earned a literary fiction award and residency from the Writer's Well.

The new edition includes a foreword by Mississippi River visual artist Nancy L. Purington, who described "Her Kind" as a poignant Great River Road history lesson along the Upper Mississippi River Valley.

Throne, a Quad Cities area writer/researcher, has continued feminist research into land and voice dispossession among indigenous cultures as a visiting researcher at the John Henry Hauberg Papers, Augustana College, in fall 2017 and will present "Hermeneutic Archival Research & Artistic License: Exhuming Dispossessed Sauk Voices through Creative Non-Fiction," May 17 at the Fourteenth International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

Her new work is an allegorical novella of three generations of Gullah women and Lowcountry heirs' property land dispossession to be released in October by Anaphora Literary Press.
