Now reading: Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko
Join us on Thursday, 7 October at 6:00pm."Demanding but confident and beautifully written" (Boston Globe), this is the story of a young Native American returning to his reservation after surviving the horrors of captivity as a prisoner of the Japanese during World War II. Drawn to his Indian past and its traditions, his search for comfort and resolution becomes a ritual--a curative ceremony that defeats his despair. Ceremony was recommended to the group by Molly Gloss, author of our greatly enjoyed August selection, Wild Life. Molly will interview Leslie Marmon Silko onstage at Lincoln Hall (Portland State University) as part of an author conversation series produced by Portland Arts & Lectures.
