Join us at the Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts
Friday, August 8 at 7:30 pm
for an evening of poetry and story
featuring the work of
Gwen Westerman and Glenn Wasicuna
Gwen Westerman is a poet and visual artist. She is the author of a collection of poetry Follow the Blackbirds, and the co-author of Mni Sota Makoce: The Land of the Dakota.
Glenn Wasicuna teaches Dakota language at Dakota Wicohan in Morton, Minnesota.
In a landscape shaped
by shifting rivers and roads,
stories surface like stone tools
along river banks after
a heavy rain.
—from the poem “Below the Surface” from Gwen Westerman’s Follow the Blackbirds
