One World Ideas x Action: An Inheritance of Secrets

Featuring Danielle Geller and K-Ming Chang

February 4, 2021 in Virtual Event

How do our families’ stories and secrets shape us?

On Thursday, February 4th at 8:00 pm ET, join Danielle Geller, author of the memoir Dog Flowers, and K-Ming Chang, author of the novel Bestiary, in conversation with One World senior editor Nicole Counts. They’ll explore the experience of uncovering truths through writing, and the constraints—and possibilities—inherent in our individual heritage. An intimate discussion, this conversation will touch upon mothers, mothering, birds, and how both writers uncovered family secrets in the process of writing their books.

We are thrilled to partner with The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation!

Danielle Geller is a writer of personal essays and memoir. She received her MFA in creative writing for nonfiction at the University of Arizona, and a Rona Jaffe Writers’ Award in 2016.

She is a member of the Navajo Nation: born to the Tsi’naajinii, born for the white man.
