New Poets of Native Nations (Graywolf Press, July 2018) gathers the work of 21 poets of diverse ages, styles, languages, and tribal affiliations to present the extraordinary range of new Native poetry. The publication features long narratives, political outcries, experimental works, and traditional lyrics—and the result is an essential anthology of some of the best poets writing today. Heid Erdrich, editor of the anthology, will discuss the poets’ literary approaches and their relevance to contemporary American poetry. Tacey Atsitty and Eric Gansworth, poets featured in the anthology, will read their work as part of this program.
Lecture, Reading & Book Signing.
Presented by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology in collaboration with the Harvard University Native American Program and the Woodberry Poetry Room at Harvard University
