ANISHINAABE SONGS FOR A NEW MILLENNIUM event at Zenith Bookstore with Marcie Rendon

September 8 @ 4:00 pm

Marcie R. Rendon will join Zenith Bookstore for a reading and discussion of her new book Anishinaabe Songs for a New Millennium on Sunday, September 8 at 4:00 pm.

This event is free and open to the public.

In Anishinaabe Songs for a New Millennium, Marcie R. Rendon summons her ancestors’ songs, and her poem-songs evoke the world still unfolding around us, reflecting our place in time for future generations. Bringing memory to life, the senses to attention, she breaks the boundaries that time would impose, carrying the Anishinaabe way of life forward in the world.

“White Earth Nation author Rendon (Sinister Graces, 2022) records and refreshes the dream music of her people in this collection of ‘poem-songs.’” —Booklist

“Marcie R. Rendon gifts us with a meditative journey pulsing with the rhythms of life in Anishinaabe Songs for a New Millennium. Her moving words are lyrical and powerful, and they touch our ‘aloneness’ with vivid, beautiful images that carry dreams in song—connections with those who came before and are yet to come.” —Gwen Nell Westerman, Poet Laureate of Minnesota

“Marcie Rendon is tired, too. But not too tired to do the hard labor of loving other human beings, and the earth, and the songs of her ancestors. As a fellow poet from the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, I could say that this collection is essential to the complicated song that is Minnesota, and that would be true, but also everyone, everywhere, needs to spend time with this book and find their own way to sing along with it or sit quietly and listen deeply to its songs.”—Bao Phi, author of A Different Pond and Thousand Star Hotel
