December Title: Earth Keeper: Reflections on the American Land by N. Scott Momaday

Wednesday, December 28, 7:00pm
Virtual Book Club Discussion

Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? Please join our virtual book club, As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature. Based on a variety of topics and featuring a range of genres, all of the books we read are written by contemporary Native authors. This month, we will be reading and discussing Earth Keeper: Reflections on the American Land by N. Scott Momaday (Kiowa). Momaday was born in Oklahoma and grew up on the Navajo, Apache and Pueblo reservations. As such, the Southwest is a part of the earth that he knows well and loves deeply. In this wise and wondrous work, Momaday shares stories and memories throughout his life, stories that have been passed down through generations, stories that reveal a profound spiritual connection to the American landscape and reverence for the natural world. He also eloquently and simply reminds us that we must all be keepers of the earth.
