Tiffany Midge is the poet laureate of Moscow, Idaho, and a noteworthy Native voice among Pacific Northwest writers (she’s a citizen of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe). She’s also pretty hilarious in the way she blends humor and social commentary in everything from the columns she once wrote for Indian Country Today to her poetry and essays that have landed her spots in McSweeney’s and other literary journals. She’s swinging through Spokane for a reading and discussion of her new memoir Bury My Heart at Chuck E. Cheese's, which Midge uses to address pop culture, feminism, politics and race in ways that should make for a fascinating and highly entertaining live event.
