With LitCity Lore, we periodically feature a story from our new LitCity website, which maps unique Iowa City literary stories to the locations where writers lived, worked, gave readings, socialized and were inspired by the town.

This week we are highlighting Ray Young Bear’s reading at Prairie Lights Bookstore on November 13, 2015.

“Ray Young Bear reads from his definitive new poetry collection, Manifestation Wolverine at Prairie Lights Bookstore. Hailed by the Bloomsbury Review as “the nation’s foremost contemporary Native American poet,” Ray Young Bear draws on ancient Meskwaki tradition and modern popular culture to create poems that provoke, astound, and heal.”
