Dreamweavers: Indigenous Poetry in Conversation

Be a part of a transformative afternoon of Indigenous poetry hosted by the remarkable Billy-Ray Belcourt! Celebrate the launch of two revelatory works by emerging talents Samantha Nock and Brandi Bird. Listen to readings, get your copies signed, buy books from Iron Dog Books, and eat delicious snacks!

Join us in the Sty-Wet-Tan Great Hall at UBC Longhouse for an illuminating evening with these two poets. Nock’s A Family of Dreamers delves into love, liberation, and Indigenous womanhood, while Bird’s The All + Flesh explores kinship, language, and cultural identities. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to engage with transformative voices weaving the personal, political, and poetic.
