KUTZTOWN, PA – Kutztown University will host a Contemporary Indigenous Writers Lunch on Tuesday, April 30, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Lytle 120. The lunch celebrates the endurance and resistance of contemporary Indigenous writers. It will begin with a presentation of readings, music and visuals, followed by a Q&A session. The event is free and open to the public.

Are you interested in hearing more voices of contemporary indigenous writers?
Want to learn more about current issues that indigenous peoples face today?
Is it hard to find resources of indigenous works to include in curriculum?
Do you want to hear some powerful poetry?
Do you get hungry at about lunch time?

Please join us for all of this and a free lunch! The presentation will include pamphlets citing resources and further reading from featured authors + others, readings by three of KU’s own graduate students, music, visuals, and time for questions and answers.

Presented by KU graduate students Kayla Ehlinger, Edward Probasco and Kahna Bull, the lunch will feature readings of authors including Tanya Tagaq, Cherie Dimaline and John Trudell, as well as Kahna Bull’s own poetry. Other topics within the presentation include current issues Indigenous peoples face today, resources of Indigenous works to include in school curriculum, and how to find and start listening to the voices of more contemporary Indigenous writers.
