Fall 2016 Hallie Ford Literary Series
Start Date: 9/15/2016Start Time: 7:30 PM

Event Description
Poet, musician, and filmmaker Trevino L. Brings Plenty is the author of two full-length volumes of poetry, Wakpá Wanáği, Ghost River and Real Indian Junk Jewelry. His work has also been included in the collection Shedding Skins: Four Sioux Poets. A Lakota Indian born on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, Trevino explores in a variety of media American Indian identity and urban Indian life. He is a singer/songwriter and guitarist with the ensemble Ballads of Larry Drake, and he has read and performed his poetry from Portland, Oregon, to Amman, Jordan. About Trevino’s most recent book, the poet and novelist Sherman Alexie writes, “These poems are 'porcupine quills,' beautiful and sharp. They draw blood. They make me laugh and cry. I love this book.”
