Event is free, but space is limited and prior registration is required.

About the Artists:

The winner of the 2022 Cider Press Review Book Award for Inheritance with a High Error Rate (January 2024), Jen Karetnick is the author of 20 additional books. Her work has won the Tiferet Writing Contest for Poetry, Hart Crane Memorial Prize, and Anna Davidson Rosenberg Prize, among other honors. She is co-founder/co-curator of the not-for-profit organization, SWWIM (Supporting Women Writers in Miami).

Dr. Natasha Varner is a historian and writer whose bylines include The Nation, Atlas Obscura, Public Radio International, and Jacobin. Her first book, La Raza Cosmética: Beauty, Identity, and Settler Colonialism in Postrevolutionary Mexico, was a finalist for the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association’s Best First Book Award in 2021.

Mychelle Moritz is a multimedia sculpture artist who incorporates clay and scavenged bits into her works. Drawing from a narrative base, each series she creates tells a story, and is especially concerned about the damage that humans are perpetrating on our wild. Creating is a way of advocating while also working through her internal landscape.
