Joining Conversation: A Roundtable With Native American Authors

This is Joining Conversation, The Virtual Book Channel’s special event roundtable.

Today’s conversation involves a small, diverse and wonderfully smart group of contemporary Native American writers. There’s thriller writer David Heska Wanbli Weiden, horror writer Stephen Graham Jones, literary writers Brandon Hobson and Kelli Jo Ford, science fiction/fantasy writer Rebecca Roanhorse, and historical writer Margaret Verble. Every one of these writers provides such insight into literature. And they prove that not only is their incredible aesthetic and genre diversity within Native writing circles, but more importantly, more than a singular voice.
