Star Tribune and MPR present Talking Volumes — Talking Race with N. SCOTT MOMADAY
Minnesota Public Radio and the Star Tribune are proud to announce a special series of Talking Volumes virtual events centered around the topic of race in America. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated economic disparities faced by communities of color. The killing of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer sparked protests around the world. We are bringing together a diverse group of authors to talk about their books, which all provide unique insights on America’s growing racial divide. All events will be held via webinar and will include an hour-long interview with the authors and a live interactive panel discussion moderated by the Star Tribune.
Scott Momaday– Earth Keeper: Reflections on the American Land. Released November 3, 2020, published by Harper Collins
About the book
One of the most distinguished voices in American letters, N. Scott Momaday has devoted much of his life to celebrating and preserving Native American culture, especially its oral tradition. A member of the Kiowa tribe who was born and grew up on Indian reservations throughout the Southwest, Momaday has an intimate connection to the land he knows well and loves deeply.
In Earth Keeper: Reflections on the American Land, he reflects on his native ground and its influence on his people.
In this moving and lyrical book, which includes original artwork by the author, Momaday offers an homage and a warning. He reminds us that the Earth is a sacred place of wonder and beauty; a source of strength and healing that must be protected before it’s too late. As he so eloquently yet simply expresses, we must all be keepers of the Earth.
Tickets for these virtual events will be available until 10:00am the morning of each webinar.
