Spring’18: Women in Literature

“When I say storytelling, I don’t just mean sitting down and telling a once-upon-a-time kind of story. I mean a whole way of seeing yourself, the people around you, your life, the place of life in the bigger context, not just in terms of nature and location, but in terms of what has gone on before and what’s happened to other people.” – Leslie Marmon Silko, Laguna Pueblo
