Terese Marie Mailhotgraduated from the Institute of American Indian Arts with an M.F.A. in fiction. Mailhots work has appeared inThe Rumpus, theLos Angeles Times,Carve Magazine,The Offing,The Toast,Yellow Medicine Review, and elsewhere.

The most powerful and poetic memoir of 2018 has been written by Mailhot and raved about by some of our favorite writers, including Roxane Gay, Sherman Alexie and Lidia Yuknavitch. Mailhot will share her coming of age story; what it was like to survive a profoundly dysfunctional upbringing on the Seabird Island Indian Reservation in the Pacific Northwest. After finding herself hospitalized and facing a dual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder and bipolar II disorder, Terese Marie Mailhot is given a notebook and begins to write her way out of trauma. The result is triumphant and beautiful - this is an event you won't want to miss.

"Heart Berries is an epic takean Iliad for the indigenous. It is the story of one First Nation woman and her geographic, emotional, and theological search for meaning in a colonial world. It is disturbing and hilarious. It contains sentences of such poetry and power that you will be compelled to set the book down and walk away to recover from the tremors." Sherman Alexie
