Join KFPL and Alicia Elliott for a discussion about her book and a Q&A.

Understanding lived experiences is essential to building understanding within and between communities. Alicia Elliott, a Haudenosaunee writer from Six Nations of the Grand River, writes about her own experiences with a strong literary voice, shedding light on the challenges faced by Indigenous communities in Canada.

Elliott’s memoir, A Mind Spread Out On the Ground, began as a series of journalistic essays. In the book, she analyses her upbringing amidst institutional oppression. She leaves no subject unexplored, writing about race, parenthood, representation, mental illness, poverty, and pop culture. Her work connects the personal and political, situating candid reflection and vulnerability within the impacts of capitalism and colonialism. 

During this event, Elliott will read from her memoir, followed by a Q&A session with attendees. 

This program was made possible by the generous support of the Friends of the Library.

KFPL will be co-facilitating this event with Deb St.Amant, Elder in Residence at the Faculty of Education at Queen’s University.
