Carnival Lights and A Council of Dolls—Native Authors on the Continuing Horrors of Colonization
The number of missing Indigenous women in North America has reached an epidemic, while horrific news of the remains of Native schoolchildren discovered at boarding schools seems to be a daily occurrence. Chris Stark and Susan Power, both of whom are releasing books related to these subjects, will be in discussion for this very special online event as a part of the Loft's Outside my Window fall theme.
