Common Reading Series: Reading by Terese Marie Mailhot

October 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In 1830, President Andrew Jackson and the U.S. Congress passed the Removal Act, a bill that forced Native Americans to leave the United States and settle in the Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River, effectively turning them into asylum seekers in their own land. This history of being forced-refugees is still on the minds of many tribal members in the U.S., including artists and writers. Join our livestream as visiting writer, Terese Marie Mailhot reads from Heart Berries and answer questions.

Current WSU Global Campus students that attend the livestream, will be entered in chance to win a free copy of the common reading book Refuge.
