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 Shutter by Ramona Emerson (Diné). In this haunting thriller, Rita Todacheene is a forensic photographer working for the Albuquerque police force. Her excellent photography skills have cracked many cases—she is almost supernaturally good at capturing details. In fact, Rita has been hiding a secret: she sees the ghosts of crime victims who point her toward the clues that other investigators overlook. This ability has isolated her from friends and driven her from life on Navajo Nation, and now it might just get her killed. Join the conversation, hosted by IAIS Education staff on Zoom.

In order to have a more intimate conversation, space is limited. Please visit our website to register and receive a Zoom link. Questions? Please email [email protected] or call (860) 868 -0518. This is a FREE event, but donations are appreciated. This event will NOT be recorded.
