What God Is Honored Here? (Shannon Gibney and Kao Kalia Yang)Shannon Gibney and Kao Kalia Yang will be at ModernWell on Tuesday, November 12 at 7:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of their new anthology, What God Is Honored Here?: Writings on Miscarriage and Infant Loss by and for Native Women and Women of Color. They will be joined by local contributors Tai Coleman and Sarah Agaton Howes. Tickets (includes copy of the book) are available for $30 for members and $40 for non-members here

 

What God Is Honored Here? is a literary collection of voices of Indigenous women and women of color who have undergone miscarriage and infant loss, experiences that disproportionately affect women who have often been cast toward the margins in the U.S. Powerfully and with brutal honesty, they write about what it means to reclaim life in the face of death.

 

"Pregnancy loss is a most enigmatic human sorrow, unique to every woman who suffers it. These stories of resilience, grief, and restoration are essential, for to understand is to heal." —Louise Erdrich

 

"What God is Honored Here? is the hardest and most important book I've read about parenting, loss, and imagination. It's also the most frightening book in my world, but not because it is horrific: it is about the terrifying possibilities of love." —Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy
