PULLMAN, Wash. — Author, activist and former Green Party vice presidential candidate Winona LaDuke will read from her latest novel, “All Our Relations,” at 7 p.m., Dec. 6, in Washington State University’s Fine Arts Auditorium.
“All Our Relations” is LaDuke’s first piece of non-fiction. It is an account of Native American resistance to environmental and cultural degradation. In the piece, she advocates self-determination and community.
