BEMIDJI — As part of Women’s History Month at BSU, Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, professor emerita of English and Native American studies at Eastern Washington University, will share her life experiences and her often controversial views of the world through humor and award-winning writing in “Challenging Orthodoxy: Themes of Resistance and Dissent,” at 7 p.m. Thursday at the American Indian Resource Center at BSU.

There will be a reception at 6:30 p.m. and a book signing at 8 p.m. following the lecture. Honors Council Lectures are open to the public free of charge. Cook-Lynn is a poet, novelist, political satirist, storyteller, professor and Crow Creek Lakota Sioux tribe member who earned bachelor’s degrees in English and journalism at South Dakota State and has a master’s degree in education from the University of South Dakota. Cook-Lynn later was in the University of Nebraska doctoral program and was a National Endowment for the Humanities fellow at Stanford.
