We can’t wait for James Thomas Stevens to grace us with his words at the end of the month.
James Thomas Stevens:
The author of eight books of poetry including Combing the Snakes from His Hair, Mohawk/Samoa: Transmigrations, Bulle/Chimere, (dis)Orient, and A Bridge Dead in the Water, James Thomas Stevens was born in Niagara Falls, New York, and is a member of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation. In a 2007 Believer magazine review of A Bridge Dead in the Water, Alan Gilbert writes: “Stevens probes the borders of language and memory—as what’s shared not only between individuals but also between cultures.” Stevens is the recipient of many awards, including a 2000 Whiting Writers’ Award. He has taught at Haskell Indian Nations University and SUNY Fredonia, where he developed its first American Indian studies program. He currently teaches at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
