Ep. 17: A Mind Spread Out on the Ground with Alicia Elliott

On another edition of Bookings Live we’re sharing an event from the Halifax Central Library featuring Haudenosaunee writer and this year’s writer-in-residence for the University of King’s College MFA in Creative Non-Fiction Program, Alicia Elliott. Alicia’s book A Mind Spread Out on the Ground is a personal and critical meditation on trauma, legacy, oppression and racism in North America.

Interviewing Alicia is Rebecca Thomas, a Mi’kmaq poet and activist who uses poetry as a powerful tool for educating about the racism and inequality that still haunts many Indigenous peoples in Canada.
