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, in celebration of National Poetry Month, we will be reading and discussing Living Nations, Living Words: An Anthology of First Peoples’ Poems. Curated and introduced by 23rd U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo (Muskogee), this anthology is a companion to her signature laureate project, which gathers the work of contemporary Native poets into a national digital map of story, sound, and space. This work allows readers a chance to hold the wealth of poems in their hands. 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.  In order to create a welcoming environment for all participants, this event will NOT be recorded
