Join us for a reading and conversation with Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm and Dallas Hunt presenting on Akiwenzie-Damm’s recently released poetry anthology, (Re)Generation: The Poetry of Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, edited with an introduction by Hunt.

Hunt and Akiwenzie-Damm will join David Gaertner in conversation about their collaboration and some of the themes that stretch across Akiwenzie-Damm’s distinguished career as a poet, publisher, and cultural worker. Resilience, love, sexuality, anger, and Indigenous brilliance are just some of the themes that will resonate throughout this event.
