Manzanita Writers’ Series Presents

In Bad Book Club, Events by Deb Vanasse

  Authors in Conversation:  Carrie Ojanen & Deb Vanasse Saturday, September 21, 2019   7 p.m. Hoffman Arts Center, Manzanita, OR Admission $7 What comes to mind when you think about Alaska? Perhaps the Klondike Gold Rush of yesteryear or the ongoing Iditarod Race. While familiar, they offer a predominantly male-centric narrative. Join author Deb Vanasse and poet Carrie Ayagaduk Ojanen as they share perspectives from the 49th state on indigenous women decolonizing the myth of the frontier. They will share readings from their latest works and discuss how indigenous women and men in Alaska seek to retain their traditions and way of life amid pressure from economic forces, both historically and today.
