Michael Wasson reads poems primarily from his first full-length collection, Swallowed Light (2022), which inhabits both the fragmented self and the tensions of language and history experienced by Wasson's Nimíipuu community. Part of the Distinguished Visitors in Creative Writing Series, this reading was originally given with Jennifer Elise Foerster.
