Stories for a Lost Child is a novel about a young woman’s mysterious Anishinaabe Indian heritage: The summer before going into high school, Fiona receives a mysterious box in the mail… It contains stories written by the grandfather she never knew, an Anishinaabe man her mother refuses to talk about. As she reads his stories about blackbirds and
bigfoot, as well as tales about Indians in space and homeless Native men camping by the river in Minneapolis…Fiona’s desire to know more and her mother’s reluctance to share stir up bitter feelings of anger and disappointment that slowly transform as she reads the stories into a warmer understanding of the difficulties of family, love, and the weight of the past.

Carter Meland writes, teaches, and lives in Minneapolis. His fiction has appeared in numerous literary reviews, including “Yellow Medicine Review,” “Lake: Journal of Arts and Environment,” “Fiction Weekly,” and “Fiddleblack.” Carter Meland’s Facebook page
