As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature – Virtual Book Club
Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? Please join our digital 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’s selection is “Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscovering God,” written by Kaitlin B. Curtice. As both a citizen of the Potawatomi Nation and a Christian, Curtice offers a unique perspective on how reconnecting with her Potawatomi identity both informs and challenges her faith.
We are delighted to have Karen Nobile as guest cohost for this event. Karen is the Associate Program Director at Mercy by the Sea Spiritual Retreat and Conference Center in Madison, CT, which offers programs in the areas of spirituality, creative expression, ecology, health and wellness. Cohosting the event will be Darlene Kascak, Schaghticoke Tribal Nation elder and IAIS Education Director.
Join the virtual conversation hosted by IAIS Staff on ZOOM. An invitation with a link to the meeting will be emailed to participants the day before the program. In order to have a more intimate conversation, space is limited. Questions? Please call 860-868-0518, or email [email protected]. This is a FREE event, but donations are appreciated.
