An Evening With Khu.Éex’ @ Online (see listing)
Oct 14 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Members of Khu.éex’, a funk/rock band founded by internationally known glass artist Preston Singletary, will share their music and some stories behind their most recent album Héen.

Registration required. Please click here to register.

This event is presented as part of Seattle Reads 2020 and is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation and Seattle City of Literature. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

Performers include Preston Singletary, Captain Raab, Edward Littlefield, Swil Kanim, Nahaan, Gene Tagaban and Sondra Segundo.

Khu.éex’ (pronounced koo-eex) translates to “Potlatch” in the Tlingit language, a Native group from Southeast Alaska. Singletary thought of the name Khu.éex’ because of the notion of sharing culture, stories, and music. This is the intent of Khu.éex’, to present a contemporary interpretation of our culture to empower others.

The recording of Khu.éex’s newest album, “Héen” (water in the Tlingit language), coincided with critical events and issues affecting Indian Country (and the earth as a whole) including the construction of Dakota Access Pipeline and the endangerment of clean water in our communities. These events were on the group’s mind during these sessions, which resulted in water being a conceptual connecting thread throughout the material.

Virtual Seattle Reads Presents Tommy Orange @ Online (see listing)
Oct 17 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

Tommy Orange joins us digitally to discuss Seattle Reads selection There There. He’ll speak with Dr. Christina Roberts, the Director of the Indigenous Peoples Institute at Seattle University.

A limited number of “seats” are available through the digital platform. Registration was required – Event is now full. This event will also be streamed live to The Seattle Public Library’s Facebook page.

Seattle Reads There There is made possible by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, The Wallace Foundation and the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation, with additional support from sponsors Seattle City of Literature, The Seattle Times, and Vintage Books.

About the Book:

There There is a powerful novel that follows twelve characters from Native communities and explores their connections to one another as each travels to the Big Oakland Powwow.

There is Jacquie Red Feather, newly sober and working to make it back to the family she left behind. Dene Oxendene, who is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death, has come to work at the powwow to honor his memory. Fourteen-year-old Orvil has come to perform traditional dance for the very first time. Together, this chorus of voices tells of the plight of the urban Native American—grappling with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and spirituality, with communion and sacrifice and heroism. Hailed as an instant classic, “There There” is at once poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, utterly contemporary and always unforgettable.

About Tommy Orange:

Tommy Orange is the author of the New York Times bestselling novel There There, a multi-generational, relentlessly paced story about a side of America few of us have ever seen: the lives of urban Native Americans. There There was one of The New York Times Book Review’s 10 Best Books of the Year, and won the Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize and the Pen/Hemingway Award. There There was also longlisted for the National Book Award and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Orange graduated from the MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts, and was a 2014 MacDowell Fellow and a 2016 Writing by Writers Fellow. He is an enrolled member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma. He was born and raised in Oakland, California.

About Seattle Reads:

Jill And Sasha La Pointe Discuss Vi Hilbert’s “Haboo” @ Online (see listing)
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The La Pointes will discuss the newly rereleased edition of Vi Hilbert’s Haboo, a collection of thirty-three stories and legends of the Lushootseed-speaking people of Puget Sound.

Registration required. Please click here to register.

The La Pointes will discuss the newly rereleased edition of Vi Hilbert’s Haboo, a collection of thirty-three stories and legends of the Lushootseed-speaking people of Puget Sound.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

The stories and legends of the Lushootseed-speaking people of Puget Sound represent an important part of the oral tradition by which one generation hands down beliefs, values, and customs to another. Vi Hilbert grew up when many of the old social patterns survived and everyone spoke the ancestral language.

Haboo, Hilbert’s collection of thirty-three stories, features tales mostly set in the Myth Age, before the world transformed. Animals, plants, trees, and even rocks had human attributes. Prominent characters like Wolf, Salmon, and Changer and tricksters like Mink, Raven, and Coyote populate humorous, earthy stories that reflect foibles of human nature, convey serious moral instruction, and comically detail the unfortunate, even disastrous consequences of breaking taboos.

Beautifully redesigned and with a new foreword by Jill La Pointe, Haboo offers a vivid and invaluable resource for linguists, anthropologists, folklorists, future generations of Lushootseed-speaking people, and others interested in Native languages and cultures.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:

Jill tsisquał La Pointe is director of Lushootseed Research and granddaughter of Vi taqšəblu Hilbert.

Sasha taqwšəblu LaPointe is a Coast Salish author from the Nooksack and Upper Skagit tribes. She received her MFA from the Institute of American Indian Arts with a focus on creative nonfiction and poetry. She is the great granddaughter of Vi taqwšəblu Hilbert and her namesake. Her memoir, Red Paint is forthcoming from Counterpoint Press.

Upper Skagit tribal elder Vi taqšəblu Hilbert (1918–2008) received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment of the Arts in 1994, taught language classes at the University of Washington, and cowrote the Lushootseed Dictionary.

PRAISE:

“Engaging, entertaining, and informative. . . Recommended.”―Choice

“Hilbert writes interestingly and informatively about the storytellers and the culture that produced the tales. . . . This carefully edited collection makes a significant contribution.”―Journal of the West

The event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company. This event is supported by The Seattle Public Library Foundation, author series sponsors the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation, and Seattle City of Literature. Thanks to media sponsor The Seattle Times.

Únase al Club de Lectura de la Biblioteca Central. Todos son bienvenidos. El libro de este mes es: Patrias: Cuatro amigos, dos países y el destino de la gran migración mexicana de Alfredo Corchado.

Cuando Alfredo Corchado se traslada a Filadelfia en 1987 como corresponsal de The Wall Street Journal, se sintió como si fuera el único mexicano en la ciudad. Pero en el restaurant Tequilas conecta con otros dos mexicanos y un mexicoamericano que se sentían tan aislados como él y comienzan una conversación sobre qué significa ser mexicano y estadounidense al mismo tiempo y que duraría más de 30 años. La perspectiva de estos cuatro amigos –David Suro, dueño del restaurante; Primo, académico y activista social, Ken Trujillo, criado en Nuevo México y con una carrera política por delante y el propio autor, será el marco en el que se cuenta esta historia. Aunque desde Estados Unidos piensan en México y su cultura como su patria original, todos acaban descubriendo que su patria es una mezcla de ambos países.

View in Catalog: Patrias by Alfredo Corchado

Translation: Join El Club Latino and spend a pleasant time talking about books and Latin American culture. El Club Latino meets once a month.

Quiara Alegría Hudes Discusses “My Broken Language” @ Online (see listing)
Apr 9 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join us to hear Hudes, a Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright, talk about coming of age, with her sprawling Puerto Rican family as a collective muse. Registration required. Click here to register via EventBrite.

Quiara Alegría Hudes is in her own league. Her sentences will take your breath away. How lucky we are to have her telling our stories.” —Lin-Manuel Miranda, award-winning creator of Hamilton

This event is presented in partnership with Elliott Bay Book Company, The Seattle Repertory Theatre, Intiman Theatre, and The Seattle Public Library Foundation. Thank you to author series sponsors the Gary and Connie Kunis Foundation, and to media sponsor The Seattle Times. This event will be recorded and posted afterwards on SPL’s YouTube channel.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Quiara Alegría Hudes was the sharp-eyed girl on the stairs while her family danced in her grandmother’s tight North Philly kitchen. She was awed by her aunts and uncles and cousins, but haunted by the secrets of the family and the unspoken, untold stories of the barrio—even as she tried to find her own voice in the sea of language around her, written and spoken, English and Spanish, bodies and books, Western art and sacred altars. Her family became her private pantheon, a gathering circle of powerful orisha-like women with tragic real-world wounds, and she vowed to tell their stories—but first she’d have to get off the stairs and join the dance. She’d have to find her language.

Weaving together Hudes’s love of books with the stories of her family, the lessons of North Philly with those of Yale, this is an inspired exploration of home, memory, and belonging—narrated by an obsessed girl who fought to become an artist so she could capture the world she loved in all its wild and delicate beauty.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

Quiara Alegría Hudes is a writer, wife, mother of two, barrio feminist, and native of West Philly, USA. Hailed for their exuberance, intellectual rigor, and rich imagination, her plays and musicals have been performed around the world. They include the Broadway hit In the Heights and the Pulitzer Prize–winning drama Water by the Spoonful. She also founded Emancipated Stories, an online gallery where people behind bars can share one page of their life story with the world.

PRAISE:

“Every line of this book is poetry. From North Philly to all of us, Hudes showers us with aché, teaching us what it looks like to find languages of survival in a country with a ‘panoply of invisibilities.’ Hudes paints unforgettable moments on every page for mothers and daughters and all spiritually curious and existential human beings. This story is about Latinas. But it is also about all of us.”—Maria Hinojosa, Emmy Award–winning journalist and author of Once I Was You: A Memoir of Love and Hate in a Torn America

“Wise, graceful, and devastatingly beautiful, Hudes’s memoir gives voice to the complicated cultural collisions and gentle rebellions that seed a life. I was inspired and moved by the resilient spirit of Hudes and the Perez women, who through joy and great heartbreak manage to conjure a remarkable world in and beyond their Philly barrio.”—Lynn Nottage, two-time Pulitzer Prize–winning playwrightent to request accommodations.
