“Tending the Fire” Book Release | City Lights

Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 7:00 pm | Cost: FREE
City Lights Books | 261 Columbus Avenue, San Francisco, CA

Christopher Felver’s Tending the Fire celebrates the poets and writers who represent the wide range of Native American voices in literature today. In these commanding portraits, Felver’s distinctive visual signature and unobtrusive presence capture each artist’s strength, integrity, and character. Accompanying each portrait is a handwritten poem or prose piece that helps reveal the origin of the poet’s language and legends. As the individuals share their unique voices, Tending the Fire introduces us to the diversity and complexity of Native culture through the authors’ generous and passionate stories.
