What God Is Honored Here? (Shannon Gibney and Kao Kalia Yang)Shannon Gibney and Kao Kalia Yang will be at the St. Katherine's University Our Lady of Victory Chapel on Friday, October 18 at 6:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of their new edited collection, What God Is Honored Here?: Writings on Miscarriage and Infant Loss by and for Native Women and Women of Color. They will be joined for readings by local contributors, including Tai Coleman, Jen Palmares, and Seema Reza.

 

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

 

"Together these writers have created a sacred space, a temple, in which the unspeakable can be shared in a way that honors their losses and the women they are, women who endured, who fought, who lost, who grieve . . . and the individual and collective healing that can come from allowing survivors to remember. A book of astounding grace and strength." —Thi Bui, author of The Best We Could Do
