KFAI Interview, 7 pm, Tuesday, July 6 – Fresh Air Radio, 90.3 FM – discussion between Annie Harvieux and me.
Click here to view the launch and hear from Ranae (author), Ruthanne Crapo Kim (philosopher), Stephen Healey (poet), Amina Keinan (Somali-American nurse educator), Ulla Nilsen (community organizer), and Kristian Tvedten (editor). They were in conversation about Watershed and its introduction to the world.
Watershed and Ranae were featured in Minneapolis College’s Community Pollinators speaker series together with Marie Harris and Derartu Berhanu, former students – now friends – whose stories appear in the book. We considered ways we can address environmental injustice, deal with our own communities’ climate crises and health challenges, and do better justice to the non-human residents of our ecosystems.
A group of people from Minnesota, Norway, and Oman explored the whys and hows of protecting our watersheds. While the actual event is over, you can still explore with us by watching the video and doing your own explorations alongside us.
The Tuesday Group from the Ely-Babbitt area of Minnesota met with Ranae in April to explore the stories in the book that directly concern the White Iron Chain of Lakes Watershed. Listen to the readings and join the discussion that ensued.
Midstream Reading, 7 pm, Thursday, July 8 – Midstream Reading – Mimi Jennings hosting; the recording will be posted soon.
