The 2013 Great Plains Writers’ Conference will feature the life and works of Vine Deloria Jr. Deloria Jr.’s son, Phillip, and Elizabeth Cook-Lynn will be the featured speakers, and there will be various other engaging sessions as well.
In anticipation of the upcoming conference, faculty and community members are reading a “shared book”: Spirit and Reason: The Vine Deloria Jr. Reader, published by Fulcrum Press in 1999 (ISBN 1555915306), $18 paperback. This is an excellent collection of the best Deloria essays through the years, plus some previously unpublished works, and can be read selectively or comprehensively.
We invite you to join us in reading this book before the 2013 Conference.
