2:30 pm: "More Dreamers of the Golden Dream" AUTHOR TALK with Susan Straight and Douglas McCulloh
Join Inlandia Institute for a conversation with writer Susan Straight and photographer Douglas McCulloh as they discuss their powerful new book, More Dreamers of the Golden Dream, based on their 2013 Riverside Art Museum exhibit by the same name. The show brought an entire community together to share stories from four generations of Californians, and now, eight years later, Straight and McCulloh return with a rich collection of essays and images that continue the chronicle of Riverside’s Eastside experience. Register now for a discussion of their collaboration – and get a sneak peek into the upcoming, updated exhibition at Riverside Art Museum, which will open October 7, 2021 and run through January 2, 2022.

Join Inlandia as we welcome two new Hillary Gravendyk Prize-winning poetry collections into the world. Authors Bronwen Tate of The Silk the Months Ignore and Adam D. Martinez of Remyth: A Postmodernist Ritual and special guest readers will read from, discuss, and celebrate the publication of their debut poetry collections.
The Silk the Moths Ignore animates the liminal, sometimes gothic, spaces of miscarriage, pregnancy, and early parenthood. It sings, bleeds, and casts spells to "carry hope like a weight."
Remyth: A Postmodernist Ritual is Hip-Hop and Punk. It's high art meeting low art at the church altar. It is a baptism and an exorcism. A Works Cited page at the crossroads with remix culture.
Bronwen Tate writes poems and essays that have appeared in The Rumpus, Bennington Review, Contemporary Literature, and elsewhere. She lives in Vancouver, BC and teaches in the School of Creative Writing at the University of British Columbia. Read more of her work at https://www.bronwentate.com/ or follow her on Twitter or Instagram @bronwentate.
Adam Daniel Martinez first scraped his knee playing in his hometown of San Bernardino, California. Since then, as a first-generation Chicano college student, he has earned a dual MA/MFA in English and Creative Writing at Chapman University. Currently, Adam enjoys sharing his love for words with his students as an English professor at Chaffey College. He lives in Redlands, California with his wife and two cats, Virginia and Percival.
