The pandemic changed every aspect of our lives, from work, to schooling, to family life. As widely reported, mothers were some of the most challenged during this time, leaving the workforce in record numbers to care for their children with little governmental and societal support. What are the stories and experiences of mothers during this time?
Organized by Shannon Gibney, Kao Kalia Yang and Catherine Squires, editors and contributors to the groundbreaking anthology What God Is Honored Here?: Writings on Miscarriage and Infant Loss by and for Native Women and Women of Color (University of Minnesota Press, 2019), they will read from their work alongside additional community members. New work on pandemic mothering will also be shared and discussed.
At this event, visitors will also have the opportunity to view Dreamsong’s inaugural exhibition, A glitter of seas, which explores maternity through painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and video by contemporary female artists.

Book sales will be handled by Moon Palace Books and a signing will follow the presentation. Beverages and light snacks will be served.
