National Writers Series: An evening with Larissa FastHorse and Ruth Ware

Jan 5, 2021

Larissa FastHorse is a playwright and member of the Sicangu Lakota Nation. Her plays combine drama and satire to portray Native American experiences. Larissa’s work called “The Thanksgiving Play” is about a group of well-meaning white educators who are tasked with creating a politically correct school pageant about the first Thanksgiving. Larissa appeared at a virtual National Writers Series event. She spoke with Cynthia Canty, former host of Michigan Radio’s “Stateside.” Ruth Ware says the most interesting thing about her is her books. She writes psychological crime thrillers, but says her own life is mundane and peaceful. Ruth’s latest novel is “One By One.” She spoke with fellow author Megan Miranda at a virtual National Writers Series event.
