Our Goals Are

We Tell Stories: A Literary Conversation and Celebration with Novelist Chris Stark, moderated by Anne K. Ream

Writer and activist Chris Stark - a longstanding World Without Exploitation (WorldWE) ally - has a new novel out. We can’t wait to celebrate it! Called “beautifully woven and gut-wrenching” by New York Times bestselling author William Kent Kruger, and “a heartbreaking wonder of gorgeous prose” by PEN/Hemingway award winner Mona Susan Power, Carnival Lights tells the story of two Ojibwe cousins who leave their reservation for a new life in Minneapolis. A literary exploration of love, loss, and generational trauma, Carnival Lights asks us to re-think the causes and consequences of sexual exploitation, while celebrating the fierce resiliency of Native women and girls. On Thursday, May 26, at 7pm Eastern, join WorldWE for a virtual celebration and conversation between Chris and writer Anne K. Ream, creator of the WE Tell Stories Literary Conversation Series and author of Lived Through This. We look forward to seeing you there!
