Sinister Sagas: Jon Arretxe & Marcie Rendon

June 04 at 5pm

This enlightening discussion between Basque author Jon Arretxe (The Touré Saga) and White Earth Nation citizen Marcie Rendon (Sinister Graves) proves that crime fiction can an effective genre to confront barriers to social justice and give space to diverse voices. Rendon presents Sinister Graves, the final installment of the Cash Blackbear series, where Cash, a 19-year-old Ojibwe woman, searches for the truth behind the disappearances of Native girls and their newborns. Arretxe’s Detective Touré is an illegal immigrant for whom it is a daily struggle to survive in a neighborhood that abounds with criminality, prostitution and the bad life of the poorest classes. The authors will speak to the significance of their work, and why their characters’ stories are more important to share now, than ever before.
