Join us on for a book release party celebrating The Axe Lectures by Brianna Johnson.
With readings by two of our other local heroes, Shanai Matteson and Katie Ka Vang. Please come out for independent bookstores, independent presses, and independent writers. Three powerhouse artists, one night, free.
Katie Ka Vang creates work from the personal in hopes of carving a communal space. She has been labeled as a playwright, performance/theatre and installation artist. She also directs the arts and culture team at the Asian Economic Development Association.
Shanai Matteson is a writer, public artist, and arts organizer. She’s one of the Collaborative Directors of Water Bar & Public Studio, where she serves water and facilitates ecological art projects that encourage cultures of reciprocity and care. Lately, she’s been steeping herself in Top 40 Country Songs, and rewriting them with narratives gathered from the small town in Northern Minnesota where she grew up.
