Event Details:

Alicia Elliott is a Mohawk writer living in Brantford, Ontario. She has written for The Globe and Mail, CBC, Hazlitt and many others. She’s had essays nominated for National Magazine Awards for three straight years, winning Gold in 2017, and her short fiction was selected for Best American Short Stories 2018, Best Canadian Stories 2018, and Journey Prize Stories 30.

She was chosen by Tanya Talaga as the 2018 recipient of the RBC Taylor Emerging Writer Award. Her first book, A Mind Spread Out On The Ground, is a national bestseller. In an urgent and visceral work that asks essential questions about the treatment of Native people in North America while drawing on intimate details of her own life and experience, she offers indispensable insights into the ongoing legacy of colonialism.

Join us for an evening of thought provoking conversation as Ms. Elliott discusses her book, writing process and more!

Registration required. This session will be held virtually over Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent to participants on the day of the program. Please note: this session is happening live and will not be recorded.
