In this lecture, award-winning Nina McConigley, author of the short-story collection Cowboys and East Indians, will discuss her upcoming novel titled “The Call of Migratory Things.” With the landscape of the American West as the framework of this different kind of pioneer narrative, the novel considers how race, immigration, colonialism, post-frontier America, motherhood and fertility, and place intersect.

This event is free and open to the public.
