POSTPONED: Chuckanut Radio Hour Featuring Sierra Crane Murdoch, Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman's Search for Justice in Indian Country

Tue, 04/28/2020 - 7:00pm
Whatcom Community College Heiner Theater
237 W. Kellogg Rd
Bellingham, WA 98226

This event has been postponed until further notice. Please check back for updates.

When Lissa Yellow Bird was released from prison in 2009, she found her home, the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation in North Dakota, transformed by the Bakken oil boom. In her absence, the landscape had been altered beyond recognition, her tribal government swayed by corporate interests, and her community burdened by a surge in violence and addiction.
Three years later, when Lissa learned that a young white oil worker, Kristopher "KC" Clarke, had disappeared from his reservation worksite, she became particularly concerned. No one knew where Clarke had gone, and few people were actively looking for him.

In YELLOW BIRD, Crane Murdoch traces Lissa's steps as she obsessively hunts for clues to Clarke's disappearance. Lissa navigates two worlds—that of her own tribe, changed by its newfound wealth, and that of the non-Native oilmen, down on their luck, who have come to find work on the heels of the economic recession. Her pursuit of Clarke is also a pursuit of redemption, as Lissa atones for her own crimes and reckons with generations of trauma.

Village Books is thrilled to welcome Jim Carrey and co-author, Dana Vachon to Bellingham on tour for their novel, Memoirs and Misinformation.
 
"None of this is real and all of it is true." --Jim Carrey
Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our "one big soul," Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world--apocalypses within and without.
 
JIM CARREY is an award-winning actor and artist.
DANA VACHON is the author of the novel Mergers and Acquisitions. His essays and journalism have appeared in The New York Times, Slate, and Vanity Fair. He lives in Brooklyn.
 
Tickets are available at WWU’s box office and online through WWU’s box office (tickets.wwu.edu). Tickets are $45/$55 and include a copy of Memoirs and Misinformation*. Online purchases are subject to standard WWU box office fees.
No backpacks will be permitted in the theater and all bags are subject to search.
Doors open at 6pm.

With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s preeminent humor writers. Calypso, his latest collection of essays, is a New York Times best-seller, and the audio version has been nominated for a 2019 Grammy in the Best Spoken Word Album category. There are over ten million copies of his books in print, and in March 2019 he was elected into the American Academy of Arts and Letters.


                  “Sedaris belongs on any list of people writing in English at the moment who are revising our ideas about what’s funny.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

Village Books is proud to present David Sedaris in partnership with the Mount Baker Theatre, as part of our Booked at the Baker series. Event starts at 7pm, doors open at 6pm. Tickets are available at the Mount Baker Theatre Box Office or online at mountbakertheatre.com.
