Hawkweed Literary Forum: BRANDON UNIVERSITY

November 17 – 18, 2010

The Creative Writing program at Brandon University will be hosting Almighty Voice and his Wife as part of their Hawkweed Literary Forum (formerly called The Literary Speakers Series). The forum has been hosting readings and performances by nationally and internationally acclaimed writers for the past several decades. The list of writers includes such luminaries as Miriam Toews, Tomson Highway, Paula Gunn Allen, David Bergen, Marilyn Dumont, Simon Ortiz, Maria Campbell, and Daniel David Moses. The series has led to the development of the Brandon Ogamas Aboriginal Literary Festival, one of Canada’s major festivals for Aboriginal writers.
