This is Where (Paperback)
Poetry collection by Louise Waakaa'igan, recipient of the 2017 PEN Poetry Prize for her first-place poem, "There is Where."
In this eagerly anticipated volume Anishinaabekwe poet Louise K. Waakaa'igan lets us hear the "winds of flutes" even as she writes from "concrete plains" of prison. In the tradition of political prisoners Leonard Peltier and Marilyn Buck, this poet lets word fly through and beyond prison walls. A multilayered origin story, This is Where refuses to duck the contradictions of time, place and belonging.
