In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, Penguin Random House is highlighting the stories of our authors as well as voices in the community who authentically represent the Indigenous Experience.  Using #StoriesoftheLand, #NativeAmericanbooks and #Indigenousreads join us in putting a spotlight on the rich and diverse stories showcasing the important contributions and experiences of Native people.

Penguin Random House recognizes the importance of supporting the Native community.  As such, we will donate 15% of net proceeds from all direct sales on between November 1, 2021- November 30, 2021, up to $30,000 to The American Indian College Fund.  We embrace their mission of providing financial support for Native American students and tribal colleges and universities.
