As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature – Virtual Book Club

A Generous Spirit: Selected Works by Beth Brant

Wednesday, June 29, 7:00pm

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 A Generous Spirit: Selected Works by Beth Brant. This anthology, edited by Janice Gould, collects the writings of Brant, a Mohawk lesbian poet, essayist and activist. During her life, Brant’s work gave voice to an often unacknowledged Two-Spirit identity, and continues to represent strength, growth, and the celebration of human compassion. Join the virtual conversation hosted by IAIS Staff on Zoom.

Please note: some of the works in this anthology discuss topics that may be upsetting to some readers, including physical violence, abusive relationships, and homophobia.
