Award-winning author Linda Hogan talks 1:30-3 pm at the UAS Campus, and 7pm at the Egan Library. Hogan has served on the National Endowment for the Arts poetry panel for two years; her writing credits include works of prose, poetry, as well as plays. Some of her writing awards include a 2002 Wordcraft Circle Writer of the Year Creative Prose: Memoir for The Woman Who Watches Over The World: A Native Memoir. In July 1998, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers' Circle of the Americas. Linda received the American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation in 1986 for Seeing Through the Sun. Chickasaw tribal affiliation and Native roots play a central roll in her writing.
