Bitterroot: A Salish Memoir of Transracial Adoption
Nov 0329477 CO-159, Fort Garland, CO
Join us on November 3 for a lecture and book signing with author Susan Harness.
Born in Montana to a family living on the Flathead Indian Reservation, Susan became a transracial adoptee at the age of two when she was removed from her home by a social worker because of “neglect.” Bitterroot: A Memoir of Transracial Adoption, is a sweeping examination of her life that explores the uneasy intersection of race, history and the brutal government American Indian policies that affect the lives of her and her families.
Susan remains involved in the issue of American Indian transracial adoption and continues to write and speak nationally and internationally about this topic as well as about American Indian assimilation policies and practices.
This event is free and open to the public. 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM November 3, 2022.
