Shannon’s essay, “All the Stars Aflame” is featured in the new anthology We Are Meant to Rise: Voices from Minneapolis to the World, which University of Minnesota Press will publish in November.
From the book description: “Here Indigenous writers and writers of color bear witness to one of the most unsettling years in U.S. history. Essays and poems vividly reflect the traumas we endured in 2020, beginning with the COVID-19 pandemic, deepened by the blatant murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers and the uprisings that immersed our city into the epicenter of worldwide demands for justice.”
