“Roots Radical” Book Club – Meeting 1

February 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a two-part guided exploration into contemporary Indigenous literature. Led by local poet and professor Crisosto Apache.

Part 1: February/March Book Club

Book: Genocide of the Mind: New Native American Writing, edited by MariJo Moore.

About the Book:
“This book puts stereotypes into contexts that have come up in American society. This reflects on the changes and the initial troubles related to the context on Indigeneity. Great writers in this book include Paula Gunn Allen, Simon J. Ortez, and Leslie Marmon Silko.

“Hopefully, the insights from this reading offer a different perspective. This book addresses the complications of Indigenous identity in the United States, Canada, and Central America. It engages in a global conversation on imperialism and identity. This book beautifully starts this conversation.”

—Crisosto Apache, Roots Radical Book Club leader

Meeting 1: February 2, 2023, 6-8 pm MST at RedLine

Join us at RedLine to meet other book club participants and book club leader, Crisosto Apache. Crisosto will provide introductory context to the book and guidance for the reading process.

Meeting 2: March 14, 2023, 6-8 pm MST at RedLine.

Join us at RedLine for a community conversation to unpack the Roots Radical Book Club Part 1 reading, guided by Crisosto.
