In celebration of Native American Heritage Month, please join WTTW and PBS Books on Tuesday, November 9 at 8:00 pm via Facebook Live for a conversation with Toni Jensen, author of Carry: A Memoir of Survival on Stolen Land and From the Hilltop

Carry: A Memoir of Survival on Stolen Land is a powerful, poetic memoir-in-essays about gun violence, land, and Indigenous women’s lives. From the Hilltop draws on American Indian oral traditions and Jensen’s own Métis upbringing to tell stories that mix many lives and voices – her characters offer fleeting perspectives on a world that reconfigures the tragedy and disconnection often found in narratives of American Indian life.

Toni Jensen’s essays and stories have been published in journals such as Orion, Catapult, and Ecotone, and have been anthologized widely. She teaches at the University of Arkansas and at the Institute of American Indian Arts.

This event is free, but RSVP below is required.
