A part of the stacked Fireside Reading Series at the St. Easy libraries, accomplished writers Heid E. Erdrich and Gwen Westerman discuss their landmark Native poetry anthology New Poets of Native Nations. And with each of the discussions this season, the two will discuss the theme of home—what it means to them and to their writing, the broader context to Native poets—as a part of the citywide intergenerational Read Brave Saint Paul reading program and conversation. Sound like a lot? Even though this conversation will likely go deep, it will an excellent literary event for anyone who’s interested in expanding the scope of reading and discussion. Wednesday, February 13th, 7 PM.
