Indigenous Literatures Book Club: This Wound Is a World
The Indigenous Literatures Book Club focuses on work by indigenous writers from around the world. Hosted by Tara McGowan-Ross, a Mi’kmaq multidisciplinary artist and writer, the meetings will take place every 4-6 weeks and are open to all.
For our September meeting, we will gather at La Petite Librairie Drawn & Quarterly (176 Bernard O.) at 7 pm to discuss This Wound Is a World by Billy-Ray Belcourt.
THIS WOUND IS A WORLD
Part manifesto, part memoir, This Wound is a World is an invitation to “cut a hole in the sky to world inside.” Billy-Ray Belcourt issues a call to turn to love and sex to understand how Indigenous peoples shoulder sadness and pain like theirs without giving up on the future. His poems upset genre and play with form, scavenging for a decolonial kind of heaven where “everyone is at least a little gay.”
