Beloved Kin and Memory Lands
This discussion is part of a larger event titled Beloved Kin and Memory Lands. Drawing on various traditions of storytelling, including poetry, history, literature, community work, and place-based narrative, this event brings together a range of scholars and community members in order to explore the history of settlement in the area and to ask how we might better attend to this history and its legacies in our current moment.
Free and open to the public. Wheelchair accessible. Reception, book sale, and book signing to follow.
