Headwaters Center for Lifelong Learning (HCLL) presents “The Land Feeds Us, Body and Soul” by Marcie Rendon on Tuesday, March 17.
The program is from 1-2:30 p.m. at Park Theatre.
An enrolled member of the White Earth Nation, Rendon is a playwright, poet, community arts activist and freelance writer. She has published four nonfiction children’s books, including “Pow Wow Summer” and ”Farmer’s Market: Families Working Together.” Her debut novel is “Murder on the Red River.” In addition, she has four published plays, several of which have been produced and performed.
Rendon will share “my history of writing and how my Ojibwe heritage has formed and shaped my story. I will talk about what brought me to writing crime that is set in the Red River Valley, my love of rivers, lakes and fields. I will share stories of my author journey and pursuit of publishing."
She supports other native artists, writers and creators in pursuit of their art.
Rendon is a recipient of the Loft's Spoken Word Immersion Fellowship with Diego Vasquez, and is the author of the poem “Wiigwaasabak,” which was featured in the St. Paul Almanac's Impressions Project.
The HCLL program is open to the public, free of charge, and handicap accessible.
HCLL will hold its annual 501c3 corporate meeting at the theatre at noon, ahead of the program. All friends of HCLL are invited to the meeting, where the annual financial report and audit will be presented, and officers and board members will be elected.
