A Conversation with Terese Mailhot: Tulsa LitFest 2020 Online
From Jamie Edford
Dr. Lindsey Claire Smith, director of the Center for Poets and Writers at OSU-Tulsa chats with Terese Mailhot, author of the compelling memoir, HEART BERRIES. Terese was to be a headliner of the 2020 Tulsa LitFest, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was moved online. With OSU alumna Jasha Lyons-Echohawk calling in, Smith and Mailhot discussed motherhood (in a pandemic!), deciding how much cultural information to share, telling the truth and making active choices to love. Funding for this event was provided by the Center for Poets and Writers at OSU-Tulsa, American Indian Quarterly Journal and the Oklahoma State University Department of English.
