March Title: “Sister Nations: Native American Women Writers on Community
Wednesday, March 30, 7:00pm

Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? If so, please join our virtual book club, As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature. Based on a variety of topics and featuring a range of genres, all of the books we will be reading have been written by contemporary Native authors. This month, we will be reading and discussing Sister Nations: Native American Women Writers on Community, edited by Heid E. Erdrich (Turtle Mountain Ojibwe) and Laura Tohe (Navajo). This anthology features stories written by female Native authors from across the nation that celebrate, record, and explore Native American women’s roles in community. With writings ranging from personal to political, from notions of love to the realities of marriage, and from finding a place in modern society to incorporating tradition into daily life, each work explores both what it means to be a woman and how those realities are complicated and informed by the Native American experience. Join the virtual conversation hosted by IAIS Staff on ZOOM.

In order to have a more intimate conversation, space is limited. Please visit our website to register through Eventbrite. This is a FREE event, but donations are appreciated.
