In honor of National Native American Heritage Month, join writers Diane Glancy and Adam Tavel for a discussion of three of Diane's works: Island of Innocent: a Consideration of the Book of Job (poetry and nonfiction in which Native American issues intrude), Mary Queen of Bees (novel) and The Book of Bearings (poetry). Part Cherokee and of English and German descent, Glancy was born in Kansas City, Missouri. She has served as artist-in-residence for the Oklahoma State Arts Council (traveling around the state to teach poetry to Native American students) and has taught Native American literature and creative writing at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Adam Tavel is the author of four books of poetry, including the forthcoming Sum Ledger (Measure Press, 2021). His most recent collection, Catafalque, won the Richard Wilbur Award (University of Evansville Press, 2018). He is a professor of English at Wor-Wic Community College in Salisbury, Maryland where he directs the Echoes & Visions Reading Series. You can find him online at http://adamtavel.com/
