SAR hosts anthropologist and award-winning author, David Treuer, for a discussion on his newest book, The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee. Treuer was SAR’s 2015 Katrin H. Lamon Resident Scholar and wrote much of the well-received publication during his time in residence.

An exploration of Native America from 1890 to the present, the book uses extensive interviews and storytelling to redefine the narrative concerning indigenous history and contemporary life. Treuer is Ojibwe from the Leech Lake Reservation in northern Minnesota. He now teaches literature and creative writing at the University of Southern California.

This event is free for SAR members and $10 for not-yet-members. Advanced registration is encouraged. Register at the link above or here.

You can order an advanced copy today from Garcia Street Books or at the event itself.
